URGE YOUR FELLOW CHRISTIANS TO REMEMBER 
IN THEIR WILLS THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH 
AND ITS INSTITUTIONS 



FORM OF BEQUEST 

"I , give, devise, and bequeath to 

the Trustees of Orange Presbytery of the Synod of North Carolina (here 
insert amount of money or estate bequeathed) for the use of the Master's 
work as supported by the Presbytery of Orange." 

(Here state whether the income from the bequest, or the bequest itself 
is to be used; the cause for which it is to be used can be stated, or it may 
be stated that it can be left to the judgment of the Presbytery.) 

BEQUEST FOR THE MASTER'S WORK 

The Presbytery is sure there are a large number of people who would like 
to leave at least a part of their money or property where it will be a per- 
petual help in the work of the Master. It therefore suggests to these friends 
that in their wills they make their bequests to the Trustees of Orange Presby- 
ery Synod of North Carolina, to be held by them as trust funds, and to be 
invested by them in good securities; the income from the investments to be 
given by the Presbytery, from time to time, to that cause or institution which 
in its judgment appears to be the most deserving. 

"There are many advantages in leaving your bequests in this way: 

"1. The Trustees are good business men and the security of the funds will 
be safeguarded. 

"2. The Presbytery can judge better ten or fifty years from the present 
time than you can now, where your money will do the most good at that time. 

"3. Because of special conditions, some year, one cause or institution may 
be in great financial need, and the Presbytery could vote to give the income 
to that cause that year: in fact, where it was most needed each year."

A PROPOSED STRUCTURE FOR ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

I. THE NATURE AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH 

God, who chose us to be His people, calls us to serve Him through worship 
and work. Therefore the Church must examine its common life, and Christians 
their private lives, to the end that all may live as servants of God obeying 
His commands. 

Christian worship depends upon and is a response to the presence of God, 
the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to what God has done for confession, 
thanksgiving, petition and obedience. 

The Church worships as believers, sharing a common life of faith, hope, 
love and commitment, assemble in common public worship. Christians worship 
God privately as individuals and families. We worship always as members of 
the Body of Christ. 

The work of the Church is a response to God's grace and is done in 
obedience to the will of God as this will is made known in Scripture. It is 
expressed in proclamation of and witness to the Word of God, and deeds of 
love and mercy. Through this service Christians seek the fulfillment of the 
divine purposes in society and history. 

(Preface, The Directory for the Worship and Work of the Church.) 

The Presbytery of Orange, as the dynamic connection of the Presbyterian 
Church, U.S. with the congregations and ministers of Alamance, Caswell, 
Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax, Johnston, Nash, 
Northampton, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, Vance, Wake and 
Warren Counties, seeks to carry out the above statement in all its forms, 
structures and programs. 

The Presbytery has as its primary task to reflect the redemptive mission 
of Jesus Christ in all its functions as an Agency of Review, Sharing, Guid- 
ance, Training, Innovation, Linking and Pastoral oversight. 

Presbytery is a reviewing agency, evaluating its words and deeds that they 
are obedient to the will of God.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



Presbytery is a sharing agency, sharing with congregations and ministers 
its experience and insight in regard to the best use of resources and energies 
in witnessing to the Lordship of Christ in its locale. 

Presbytery is a guiding agency, challenging congregations and ministers 
to use their full capacities in meeting their mission in being the servant 
community. 

Presbytery is an innovative agency, initiating and carrying out imaginative 
forms of ministry which could not normally be accomplished through the 
limited resources of the parish. 

Presbytery is a linking agency, binding Christians to Christ, higher courts 
to lower, local churches to each other, other Christian bodies in cooperation, in 
ONE mission of the Church. 

Presbytery is a pastoral agency, providing whatever support, insight or 
counseling may be needed by its sessions and ministers. 

Presbytery is a training agency, providing whatever education, resources 
or personnel necessary to accomplish its mission and the mission of its mem- 
ber churches. 

Because mission must determine form, Presbytery must remain flexible in 
its attitude toward structure, responding to current opportunities for fulfilling 
its mission. While maintaining the integrity of the interconnected body, the 
Church does not exist for selfish reasons but for the service of God and to 
make visible the love of God at work in the world. Therefore, it must be 
capable of acting quickly and decisively in the Name of Christ. It must be 
ready to follow its Lord into the uncertain future, willing to risk all, even its 
organizational life, in obedience to Him. 

II. THE STRUCTURE OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

Orange Presbytery carries out its mission through three divisions: The 
Division of Education and Mission, The Division of Elders, and The Division 
of Court Operations. It exercises oversight of these three divisions through 
a Council. In addition, a Commission on the Church and it Ministry and a 
Commission on Presbytery's Minutes are empowered to act on behalf of 
Presbytery in certain limited areas. 

THE DIVISION OF EDUCATION AND MISSION 

The Division of Education and Mission acts primarily as a sharing, guid- 
ing, training, and innovative agency. It is headed by a General Presbyter, 
who may be either a Teaching or Ruling Elder, and is composed of (1) Com- 
mittee on Education and (2) Committee on Mission. The chairman of each 
committee together with the General Presbyter constitute a steering commit- 
tee to coordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on Education shares its experience with and gives guid- 
ance to congregations in meeting their mission. It is concerned with commit- 
ment, education, home and family nurture, worship, service, witness and 
evangelism, and the physical health of the congregations and their members. 
The entire thrust of its work is to help congregations improve their mission 
by improving continuing programs as well as developing new programs or 
methods. It operates Presbytery's camps and conference grounds. 

The Committee on Mission is an innovative agency, carrying out direct 
mission in such areas as urban ministry, town and country ministry, media 
ministry, new church development, campus Christian life, inter-church rela- 
tions, and any other forms of experimental ministry. It gives guidance to 
urban councils, shares its experience with aid-receiving churches in improving 
ministry in town and country, establishes new churches, develops new tech- 
niques of ministry through use of mass media of newspapers, radio and 
television, links its work to the college campus, actively cooperates with other 
Christian bodies in ministry, and continuously tries new forms of ministry, 
including research, oversight and evaluation.

THE DIVISION OF ELDERS 

The Division of Elders acts primarily as a reviewing, training, and pastoral 
agency. It is headed by a General Pastor, who is a Teaching Elder and is 
composed of (1) Committee on the Session and its Work, (2) Committee on 
Candidates, Calls and Examinations, and (3) Committee on the Non-Parish 
Teaching Elder. The chairman of each committee together with the General 
Pastor constitute a steering committee to coordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on the Session and its Work reviews sessional records and 
the minister's work. At the invitation of the session or at its own initiative, 
it meets with the session of a church. Each church in the Presbytery would 
be visited at least once every three years. Before any visit, the session would 
be asked to conduct a self -evaluation of the progress of the Kingdom in the 
congregation and the community. All committee findings go to the Commis- 
sion on the Church and its Ministry. This committee is responsible for en- 
couraging the continuing education of teaching elders and the training of 
church officers. 

The Committee on Candidates, Calls and Examinations encourages those 
called by God to ministry to respond positively to that call. It counsels with 
and gives guidance to them as they prepare themselves for service. It over- 
sees any in-service training. This committee is responsible for recommenda- 
tions to Presbytery regarding calls or other work, counseling with sessions 
concerning supply ministers (Stated, Interim, or Occasional) and counseling 
with pastoral nominating committees concerning pastoral calls. This commit- 
tee examines all candidates for ordination and all ministers applying for mem- 
bership in the Presbytery. 

The Committee on the Non-Parish Teaching Elder exercises Presbytery's 
concern for the ministry carried out by teaching elders who do not have sup- 
porting sessions. 

THE DIVISION OF COURT OPERATIONS 

The Division of Court Operations is primarily a sharing and linking 
agency. It is headed by a Stated Clerk and Treasurer who, with staff assis- 
tance, personally performs many of the functions of the Division. Preferably, 
the Stated Cerk and Treasurer would be a layman, familiar with both business 
and Presbyterian polity. The Division is composed of (1) Docket and Liaison 
Committee, (2) Finance Committee, and (3) Worship Committee. The chairman 
of the Docket and Liaison Committee and the chairman of the Finance Com- 
mittee together with the Stated Clerk and Treasurer constitute a steering 
committee to coordinate the work of the Division. 

The Docket and Liaison committee prepares the docket for each stated 
meeting of Presbytery. The docket will be submitted to the Council for their 
advice and consent at least two weeks before each stated meeting of Presby- 
tery. The Stated Clerk and Treasurer will make available for study to repre- 
sentatives and members of Presbytery pertinent divisional reports, recom- 
mendations, and the docket at least one week prior to each stated meeting of 
Presbytery. After each meeting of Presbytery, stated, called or adjourned, 
this same group of people constitute Presbytery's Commission to approve the 
minutes of the previous meeting. After approval, the Stated Clerk will be 
authorized to print and distribute them. This committee communicates de- 
cisions of higher courts and information from various Presbyterian agencies 
to the appropriate parts of Presbytery. It also communicates information from 
any part of Presbytery to higher courts or their agencies. 

The Finance Committee hears from the various divisions and agencies of 
Presbytery their requests for funds and prepares an appropriate budget. The 
budget will be submitted first to Council for their approval and then to Pres- 
bytery for their approval. This committee reviews and approves the total 
budget of aid-receiving churches before Presbytery benevolent funds can be 

J

released. This committee arranges for necessary audits and reports the results 
to Presbytery through the Council. This committee supervises deferred gifts, 
has responsibility for the maintenance of the physical property of Presbytery, 
will be in charge of any Presbytery- wide fund raising campaigns, and will 
constitute Presbytery's link to the Glade Valley School. 

The Worship Committe will have charge of all worship services at any 
meeting of Presbytery. 

THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The Council of Presbytery consists of sixteen voting members and five 
ex-officio non-voting members. The Chairman of the Council, who is a voting 
member, shall be elected annually by Presbytery. No individual shall serve 
more than three successive terms as Chairman. There shall be three classes 
of three each; Presbytery shall elect a class annually for three year terms. 
Of these nine at-large members, at least five must be laymen. The Committee 
on Education and the Committee on Mission of the Division of Education and 
Mission shall each elect a voting representative to Council. At least one must 
be a layman. The Committee on the Session and its Work and the Committee 
on Candidates, Calls and Examinations shall each elect a voting representative 
to Council. At least one must be a layman. The Docket and Liaison Commit- 
tee and the Finance Committee of the Division of Court Operations shall each 
elect a voting representative to Council. At least one must be a layman. All 
of these representatives serve both on the respective committees and the 
Council. They shall be elected annually and no individual shall serve more 
than three successive terms. The General Presbytery, the General Pastor, the 
Stated Clerk and Treasurer, the Chairman of the Commission on the Church 
and its Ministry, and the Moderator of Presbytery shall all be advisory non- 
voting members of the Council. 

The major responsibility of the Council will be to coordinate the work of 
the three Divisions. The Council will have a Personnel Committee to make 
recommendations to it and Presbytery concerning the positions of General 
Presbyter, General Pastor, and Stated Clerk and Treasurer. 

PRESBYTERY COMMISSIONS 

The Commission on the Church and its Ministry exercises pastoral concern 
by visiting churches to inquire into and settle difficulties, especially those 
arising out of relationships between teaching elders and churches. No person 
can simultaneously serve on both the Committee on the Session and its Work 
and the Commission on the Church and its Ministry. 

The Commission on Presbytery's Minutes has been described above under 
the Docket and Liaison Committee of the Division of Court Operation. 

OTHER COMMITTEES 

Presbytery shall elect a Nominating Committee to recommend those people 
who are to serve on any of Presbytery's committees or commissions. 

The Trustees of Presbytery shall hold legal titles of real estate and other 
property in the name of Presbytery.

THE TASK 

A. Materials and Guidelines " - 

The Interim Council has met during the eight months of its exis- 
tence a total of thirteen times, each meeting consuming from SV2 to 
8 hours. Attendance and participation by the members has been faith- 
ful, responsible, diligent and in a prevailing spirit of prayerful concern 
for the seriousness and difficulty of our assigned task. 
Much time has been spent in study and interpretation of the Restruc- 
turing Committee Report, which by approval of the Joint Meeting, 
March 23, is our "Manual of Operation." This Restructuring Commit- 
tee Report contains the following major emphasis: 

1. The Nature and Mission of the Church 

2. The Structure of Orange Presbytery

Helpful diagrams showing the subcommittee structure and relation-

Orange Presbytery structure, were furnished by the joint Restructuring 
Committee. 

B. Procedure 

The Interim Council has functioned by sub-committees assigned 
specific tasks in carrying out the duties assigned by the merging 
Presbyteries. 

1. Using the Restructuring Report outlined above as our manual and 
guideline, subcommittees prepared Job Descriptions for the three 
executive positions that are authorized for the New Orange Presby- 
tery. These were revised by the whole Council membership for their 
present use. 

The three executive positions are: 

General Presbyter, responsible for the Division of Education and 
Mission 

General Pastor, responsible for the Division of Elders 
Stated Clerk and Treasurer, responsible for the Division of Court 
Operations 

Each position has been described in the Job Description in terms 
of Characteristics of the Position, Major Responsibilities, and Super- 
vision of Staff 

Provision has been made also for secretarial and other staff 
employees. Salary range and other benefits have been specified for 
the positions. 

2. As directed by the merging Presbyteries, the Interim Council has 
; notified the executives and their staff personnel of both presbytery 

offices that: 

"Both presbytery offices be maintained until the end of 1971. 
In the merged Presbytery the present executive positions will not 
be maintained; however the persons presently in those positions 
would be eligible to apply for the new executive positions. Also, at 
the end of 1971, the present office staffs will be released, but 
eligible for rehiring upon application," 

The Interim Council also requested that the present Presbytery 
Office staffs of both presbyteries be retained through the transition 
period with salaries guaranteed through February 29, 1972. 

3. Notice has been given the two Camp Directors at New Hope and 
Presbyterian Point, respectively, that thev be retained as part of 
New Orange Presbytery staff of the Division of Education and Mis- 
sion, through September 30, 1972. 

III. PROGRESS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

The Interim Council as a whole made final decisions in arriving at recom- 
mendations in all of these areas. 

A. PROGRESS 

In the course of our study and interpretation of the Report of the 
Restructuring Committee on the Nature and Mission of the Church, 
and its restructuring strategy for the New Orange Presbytery, there 
have been occasions when serious questions were raised as to just how 
this new and untried concept should be implemented. The task of 
formulating adequate Job Descriptions has been formidable and at 
times frustrating. Resolution of the working relationships between the 
three executives has not been easily analyzed. The question has been 
raised at times whether or not the new Presbytery should consider a 
different philosophy and concept of restructuring the Presbytery for 
its tasks. 

However, the Interim Council has not presumed to answer this 
question, but rather to proceed with our assigned task. This we have 
done to the best of our ability within the limits that time and circum- 
stance have allowed. Thus, we make these narrative explanations of 
our proceedings in order that members of this court may have accurate 
understanding of our task and endeavors to accomplish it. While our 
task has not been completed, we have arrived at the point in time and 
progress that we feel it necessary to report to the merging presby- 
teries in this Adjourned Meeting, with our recommendations, and for 
further instructions for completion of our task. 

We will make the recommendations thus far accomplished as 
follows : 

B. RECOMMENDATIONS 

Ruling elder George Elliott, chairman, Committee on Sites, presented 
the following information and recommendation: 

1. Sites — Granville Presbytery does not own any office facility. 

Inventory has been taken of furniture and other equipment 
belonging to Granville Presbytery, to be either used or appropriately 
^ disposed of in the interest of New Orange Presbytery. 

Orange Presbytery owns property in Greensboro. In order to 
locate the offices of the New Orange Presbytery in a suitable 
facility and as near the population and geographical center as com- 
munication and other conveniences require, and after thorough 
investigation of other possible locations, the Interim Council has 
taken the following action: 

"WE RECOMMEND THAT ORANGE PRESBYTERY SECURE 
UP TO 3,000 SQUARE FEET OF OFFICE SPACE AT $5.00 PER 
SQUARE FOOT IN THE SOUTHERN BELL BUILDING AT 
HOLLY HILL MALL, BURLINGTON, N. C, AND THAT THE 
PHYSICAL DETAILS OF THE SPACE BE WORKED OUT BY 
THE SITES SUBCOMMITTEE, INCLUDING A PRORATA FOR- 
MULA FOR HALL AND REST ROOM SPACE AND THE SECUR- 
ING OF SHORT TERM LEASE AGREEMENT WITH PROVISION 
FOR AN OPTION TO LEASE FOR AN ADDITIONAL THREE 
AND FIVE YEAR PERIOD. 

"WE RECOMMEND THAT PRESBYTERY GRANT AUTHOR- 
ITY TO THE TRUSTEES TO HAVE THE OFFICE PROPERTY 
IN GREENSBORO APPRAISED BY COMPETENT APPRAISERS 
OF REAL ESTATE, PLACE THE PROPERTY ON THE MARKET, 
AND CONSUMMATE THE SALE AS SOON AS FEASIBLE: OR 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



IF NOT FEASIBLE FOR SALE, TO LEASE THE PROPERTY: 
AND FURTHER, THAT THE PRINCIPAL GAINED BY THE 
SALE BE INVESTED INTACT, WITH THE INTEREST BEING 
USED TO DEFRAY RENTAL EXPENSES OF A NEW OFFICE, 
OR THE INCOME FROM LEASING THE PROPERTY IN 
GREENSBORO BE USED TO DEFRAY THE RENTAL 
EXPENSES." 

The following resolution was adopted: 

"Be it resolved that Orange Presbytery and Granville Presbytery 
meeting in joint session at the First Presbyterian Church in Bur- 
lington, N. C. on November 16, 1971, authorize the Trustees of both 
Presbyteries to sign a lease for approximately 3,000 square feet of 
floor space in the Southern Bell Building in the Holly Hill Shopping 
area of Burlington, N. C. and owned by Bill Price, at an annual 
rental not to exceed $16,000 per year. The rent includes janitorial 
services and all utilities except telephone. The lease shall be for a 
term of 2 years with the privilege of renewal for 8 years by the 
new Presbytery of Orange." 

This resolution was adopted. 

2. Budget — Ruling elder James Gates, chairman. Committee on Budget 
presented the projected budget of New Orange Presbytery. The 
projected budget was adopted (See page 31). 

3. Program — The Christian Education and Church Extension Commit- 
tees of both presbyteries under guidance of their respective chair- 
men, all members of the Interim Council, have made appropriate 
plans and projections to facilitate a smooth transition. 

RECOMMENDATIONS: 

a. The Interim Council recommends that the Nominating Commit- 
tee be requested to nominate a Temporary Steering Committee 
for each of the Presbytery Division (i.e., Education and Mission, 
15 persons; Elders, 12 persons; Court Operations, 9 persons; 
general 50/50; geographically and lay /clergy. 

b. That these Temporary Steering Committees be instructed to 
begin formulation of Divisional programs and with the Council 
of Presbytery begin developing such subsequent structure as may 
become needful for the total ministry of the Presbytery. 

c. That the Nominating Committee be instructed to nominate to 
Presbytery the chairman and the nine members of the Council, 
according to the plan agreed upon at the Joint Meeting of the 
presbyteries March 23, 1971. 

4. Personnel — Rev. Lewis Bledsoe, chaimian, presented the recom- 
mendation of the Committee on Personnel which was adopted. 

RECOMMENDATION : 

That Orange Presbytery call Mrs. Joyce Phillips Bauer as PRES- 
BYTERY OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR-TREASURER for a term of 
three (3) years beginning January 1, 1972. The terms of the call to 
be: 

A. Annual Salary of $10,000. 

B. Two weeks vacation 

C. Group Life and Major Medical Insurance for employee and family 

D. 8% of salary base into EAF for employee retirement 

E. Annual review of the terms of call 

F. Opportunities for Continuing Education 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery

The Interim Council is following guidelines in the area of appli- 
cation and consideration of executive position persons. 

A subcommittee receives and processes applications and recom- 
mendations; uses a dossier form applicable to all persons considered, 
which includes a statement of their credentials and references; uses 
a questionaire in following up the references; compiles the data on 
each person for presentation to the Interim Council. 

Prospective candidates have been sought from the Boards of 
National Ministries, Christian Education, and the Committee on the 
Minister and His Work. All pastors and Sessions in the two presby- 
teries have received letters seeking their suggestions. Existing Execu- 
tive Secretaries of Synods and the Seminaries have been sources of 
suggestions. The Interim Council as a whole reviews the processed 
data, and conducts the interviews, and determines the candidates to 
be recommended (or nominated) to the merged Presbytery. 

Much time has been spent in the area of interviewing candidates 
for the positions of General Presbyter, General Pastor, and Stated 
Clerk and Treasurer. Consideration has been given to recommending 
some variation in the description and division of duties regarding the 
office of Stated Clerk or Treasurer. The Interim Council has au- 
thorized recommendations in one or more of these positions, con- 
tingent upon satisfactory agreement with the candidates regarding 
terms of their possible employment. If these contingencies are satis- 
factorily concluded in time to permit specific persons to be recom- 
mended, it will be done. 

IV. CONCLUSION 

It is evident that the Interim Council has not completed fully the assign- 
ment of this Court. The Interim Council will continue to pursue to appropri- 
ate accomplishment the incomplete items in this assignment, unless otherwise 
instructed by the merging presbyteries. 

We make these recommendations to this Adjourned Meeting of the merging 
presbyteries.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON NOMINATIONS 

Rev. Charles Carter, Chairman, presented the report of the Committee 
on Nominations. The recommendations were considered seriatim, adopted and 
the report as a whole was adopted. (Report attached) 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RESTRUCTURING 

Ruling elder Malcolm Williams, chairman, presented the Manual of the 
New Orange Presbytery for 1973 which was amended to read "ordinarily" 
a teaching elder (under the Division of Elders) and was adopted. 

L THE NATURE AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH 

God, who chose us to be His people, calls us to serve Him through worship 
and work. Therefore the Church must examine its common life, and Christians 



26 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



their private lives, to the end that all may live as servants of God obeying 
His commands. 

Christian worship depends upon and is a response to the presence of God, 
the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to what God has done for us and for 
our salvation, which we acknowledge by acts and adoration, confession, thanks- 
giving, petition and obedience. 

The Church worships as believers, sharing a common life of faith, hope, 
love and commitment, assemble in common public worship. Christians worship 
God privately as individuals and families. We worship always as members 
of the Body of Christ. 

The work of the Church is a response to God's grace and is done in 
obedience to the will of God as this will is made known in Scripture. It is 
expressed in proclamation of and witness to the Word of God, and deeds of 
love and mercy. Through this service Christians seek the fulfillment of the 
divine purposes in society and history. 

(Preface, The Directory for the Worship and Work of the Church.) 

The Presbytery of Orange, as the dynamic connection of the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S. with the congregations and ministers of Alamance, Caswell, 
Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax, Johnston, Nash, 
Northampton, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, Vance, Wake and 
Warren Counties, seeks to carry out the above statement in all its forms, 
structures, and programs. 

The Presbytery has as its primary task to reflect the redemptive mission 
of Jesus Christ in all its functions as an Agency of Review, Sharing, Guidance, 
Training, Innovation, Linking and Pastoral oversight. 

Presbytery is a reviewing agency, evaluating its words and deeds that 
they are obedient to the will of God. 

Presbytery is a sharing agency, sharing with congregations and ministers 
its experience and insight in regard to the best use of resources and energies 
in witnessing to the Lordship of Christ in its locale. 

Presbytery is a guiding agency, challenging congregations and ministers 
to use their full capacities in meeting mission in being the servant community. 

Presbytery is an innovative agency, initiating and carrying out imaginative 
forms of ministry which could not normally be accomplished through the 
limited resources of the parish. 

Presbytery is a linking agency, binding Christians to Christ, higher courts 
to lower, local churches to each other, other Christian bodies in cooperation, 
in ONE mission of the Church. 

Presbytery is a pastoral agency, providing whatever support, insight or 
counseling may be needed by its sessions and ministers. 

Presbytery is a training agency, providing whatever education, resources 
or personnel necessary to accomplish its mission and the mission of its member 
churches. 

Because mission must determine form, Presbytery must remain flexible in 
its attitude toward structure, responding to current opportunities for fulfilling 
its mission. While maintaining the integrity of the interconnected body, the 
Church does not exist for selfish reasons but for the service of God and to 
make visible the love of God at work in the world. Therefore, it must be 
capable of acting quickly and decisively in the Name of Christ. It must be 
ready to follow its Lord into the uncertain future, willing to risk all, even 
its organizational life, in obedience to Him. 

II. THE STRUCTURE OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

Orange Presbytery carries out its mission through three divisions: The 
Division of Education and Mission, The Division of Elders, and The Division 
of Court Operations. It exercises oversight of these three divisions through 
a Council. In addition, a Commission on the Church and its Ministry and a 
Commission on Presbytery's Minutes are empowered to act on behalf of 
Presbytery in certain limited areas. 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



27 



THE DIVISION OF ELDERS 

The Division of Elders acts primarily as a reviewing, training, and pastoral 
agency. It is headed by a General Pastor, who is ordinarily a Teaching Elder 
and is composed of (1) Committee on the Session and its Work, (2) Committee 
on Candidates, Calls and Examination, and (3) Committee on the Non-Parish 
Teaching Elder. The chairman of each committee together with the General 
Pastor constitute a steering committee to coordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on the Session and its Work reviews sessional records and 
the minister's work. At the invitation of the session or at its own initiative, it 
meets with the session of a church. Each church in the Presbytery would be 
visited at least once every three years. Before any visit, the session would 
be asked to conduct a self-evaluation of the progress of the Kingdom in the 
congregation and community. All committee findings go the Commission on 
the Church and its Ministry. This committee is responsible for encouraging 
the continuing education of teaching elders and the training of church officers. 

The Committee on Candidates, Calls and Examinations encourages those 
called by God to ministry to respond positively to that call. It counsels with 
and gives guidance to them as they prepare themselves for service. It over- 
sees any in-service training. This committee is responsible for sessions con- 
cerning supply ministers (Stated, Interim, or Occasional) and counseling with 
pastoral nominating committees concerning pastoral calls. This committee 
examines all candidates for ordination and all ministers applying for member- 
ship in the Presbytery. 

The Committee on the Non-Parish Teaching Elder exercises Presbytery' 
concern for the ministry carried out by teaching elders who do not have 
supporting sessions. 

THE DIVISION OF EDUCATION AND MISSION 

The Division of Education and Mission acts primarily as a sharing, guiding, 
training, and innovative agency. It is headed by a General Presbyter, who may 
be either a Teaching or Ruling Elder, and is composed of (1) Committee on 
Education and (2) Committee on Mission. The chairman of each committee 
together with the General Presbyter constitute a steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on Education shares its experience with and gives guidance 
to congregations in meeting their mission. It is concerned with commitment, 
education, home and family nurture, worship, service, witness and evangelism, 
and the physical health of the congregations and their members. The entire 
thrust of its work is to help congregations improve their mission by improving 
continuing programs as well as developing new programs or methods. It 
operates Presbytery's camps and conference grounds. 

The Committee on Mission is an innovative agency, carrying out direct 
mission in such areas as urban ministry, town and country ministry, media 
ministry, new church development, campus Christian life, inter-church rela- 
tions, and any other forms of experimental ministry. It gives guidance to 
urban councils, shares its experience with aid-receiving churches in improving 
ministry in town and country, establishes new churches, developes new techni- 
ques of ministry through use of mass media of newspapers, radio and tele- 
vision, links its work to the college campus, actively cooperates with other 
Christian bodies in ministry, and continuously tries new forms of ministry, 
including research, oversight and evaluation. 

THE DIVISION OF COURT OPERATIONS 

The Division of Court Operations is primarily a sharing and linking 
agency. It is headed by a Stated Clerk and Treasurer who, with staff assis- 
tance, personally performs many of the functions of the Division. Preferably, 
the Stated Clerk and Treasurer would be a Ruling Elder, familiar with busi- 
ness. The Division is composed of (1) Docket and Liaison Committee, (2) 
Finance Committee, and (3) Worship Committee. The chairman of the Docket 



28 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



and Liaison Committee and the chairman of the Finance Committee together 
with the Stated Clerk and Treasurer constitute a steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Docket and Liaison committee prepares the docket for each stated 
meeting of Presbytery. The docket will be submitted to the Council for their 
advice and consent at least two weeks before each stated meeting of Pres- 
bytery. The Stated Clerk and Treasurer will make available for study to 
representatives and members of Presbytery pertinent divisional reports, re- 
commendations, and the docket at least one week prior to each stated meeting 
of Presbytery. After each meeting of Presbytery, stated, called or adjourned, 
this same group of people constitute Presbytery's Commission to approve the 
minutes of the previous meeting. After approval, the Stated Clerk will be 
authorized to print and distribute them. This committee communicates deci- 
sions of higher courts and information from various Presbyterian agencies to 
the appropriate parts of Presbytery. It also communicates information from 
any part of Presbytery to higher courts of their agencies. 

The Finance Committee hears from the various divisions and agencies of 
Presbytery their requests for funds and prepares an appropriate budget. The 
budget will be submitted first to Council for their approval and then to 
Presbytery for their approval. This committee reviews and approves the total 
budget of aid-receiving churches before Presbytery benevolent funds can be 
released. This committee arranges for necessary audits and reports the 
results to Presbytery through the Council. This committee supervises deferred 
gifts, has responsibility for the maintenance of the physical property of 
Presbytery, will be in charge of any Presbytery-wide fund raising campaigns 
and will constitute Presbytery's link to the Glade Valley School. 

The Worship Committee will have charge of all worship servies at any 
meeting of Presbytery. 

THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The Council of Presbytery consists of sixteen voting members and five ex- 
officio non-voting members. The Chairman of the Council, who is a voting 
member, shall be elected annually by Presbytery. No individual shall serve 
more than three successive terms as Chairman. There shall be three classes 
of three each: Presbytery shall elect a class annually for three year terms. 
Of these nine at-large members, at least five must be laymen. The Committee 
on Education and the Committee on Mission of the Division of Education and 
Mission shall each elect a voting representative to Council. At least one must 
be a layman. The Committee on the Session and its Work and the Committee 
on Candidates, Calls and Examinations shall each elect a voting representative 
to Council. At least one must be a layman. The Docket and Liaison Committee 
and the Finance Committee of the Division of Court Operations shall each 
elect a voting representative to Council. At least one must be a layman. All of 
these representatives serve both on the respective committees and the council. 
They shall be elected annually and no individual shall serve more than three 
successive terms. The General Presbyter, The General Pastor, the Stated Clerk 
and Treasurer, the Chairman of the Commission on the Church and its 
Ministry, and the Moderator of Presbytery shall all be advisory non-voting 
members of the Council. 

The major responsibility of the Council will be to coordinate the work of 
the three Divisions. The Council will have a Personnel Committee to make re- 
commendations to it and Presbytery concerning the positions of General 
Presbyter, General Pastor, and Stated Clerk and Treasurer. 

PRESBYTERY COMMISSIONS 

The Commission on the Church and its Ministry exercises pastoral concern 
by visiting churches to inquire into and settle difficulties, especially those 
arising out of relationships between teaching elders and churches. No person 
can simultaneously serve on both the Committee on the Session and its Work 
and the Commission on the Church and its Ministry.

REPORT OF THE INTERIM COUNCIL 

Reverend J. P. G. Moffett, Chairman, presented the report of the Interim 
Council of the Presbyteries of Granville and Orange which was adopted: 

The Interim Council has met six times since last reporting to the 
Adjourned Meeting of the merging Presbyteries, November 16, 1971. We have 
continued to seek to secure the best qualified persons available for the 
executive positions in the structure of New Orange Presbytery. 

The position of Presbytery Office Administrator and Treasurer has been 
filled by Mrs. Joyce Bauer, following action of the Adjourned Meeting of 
November 16, 1971. Also, by the same action. Miss Gail York is presently 
filling the office of Secretary and Bookkeeper. 

The new Presbytery office authorized by the November 16, 1971 Adjourned 
Meeting to be located in the Holly Hill Mall area in Burlington, will be ready 
for occupancy not later than January 31, and has been leased for two years. 

At the December 13, 1971 meeting of the Interim Council, the following 
actions were taken and communicated to the staff persons affected. 

In reply to several inquiries regarding the termination of the Office 
Executive Secretary, Stated Clerk and Treasurer of Old Orange Presbytery, 
the following recommendation was made: 

(1) That the Council of Orange Presbytery continue to C. Linwood 
Cheshire until June 30, 1972, or until such date that he accepts a 
call, if sooner than July 1, 1972, his salary compensation on the basis 
of an annual amount of $11,550, his use of the manse with utilities, 
10% participation in the Ministers' Annuity Fund, group life and

major medical insurance as provided by the Board of Annuities and 
Relief, participation in Social Security, and participation in disability 
insurance; 

(2) That the Present Council of (Old) Orange Presbytery be requested 
to close the present office in Greensboro by January 31, 1972, includ- 
ing a complete audit; and 

(3) That the salaries for the present employees of both Presbyteries 
being employed by the new Presbytery start January 1, and that 
earned but unused vacation time for 1971 be carried over into 1972. 

The Interim Council meeting January 3, 1972, approved the following 
recommendations to Orange Presbytery: 

(1) That Mrs. Joyce Bauer, recently ordained as a Ruling Elder in the 
Milner Memorial Presbyterian Church, Raleigh, be given the title 
of Stated Clerk and Treasurer of Orange Presbytery, and be author- 
ized to fulfill the duties of this position; and 

(2) That the Interim Council be dissolved in view of the Orange Pres- 
bytery Council now functioning and having authority to complete 
the unfinished agenda assigned to the Interim Council. 

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE — INTERIM COUNCIL 

The report of the Personnel Committee of the Interim Council was pre- 
sented by Reverend Lewis Bledsoe, chairman. This report was received as 
information. 

COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The report of the Council of Orange Presbytery was presented by the 
chairman. Reverend Wallace M. Alston, Jr. Actions of the Council are as 
follows : 

The Council of the Presbytery of Orange met in the First Presbyterian 
Church, Durham, North Carolina, Thursday, December 30, 1971, at 7:30 p.m. 
The functions and procedure of the Council, as related to the Manual of the 
Presbytery, were discussed. Members of the Council reflected on Council 
needs and concurred that Orange Council would assume more responsibility 
than the previous Orange-Granville Councils had assumed in the past. 

The three Executive Team Staff of Orange Presbytery will be directly 
responsible to the Council and the Council in turn will be responsible to the 
Presbytery of Orange. 

It will be the task of the Council to assume a role of leadership regarding 
proprieties, goals, objectives, and mission of the Presbytery. The Council 
will act in a similar position as an Executive Committee of Orange Presbytery. 
Other duties of the Council listed in the Manual were discussed; i. e., propose 
strategy for our regional mission, present several sets of alternatives and let 
the Presbytery decide which it will follow. 

Reports were heard from each Division Chairman; i. e., Education and 
Mission, Division of Elders, and Division of Court Operations. 

The Council instructed Mrs. Joyce Bauer to execute all necessary trans- 
actions relative to establishing Orange Presbytery offices in Burlington, N. C, 
and the moving of present Presbytery offices now located in Raleigh and 
Greensboro, N. C, on or about January 31, 1972 or as soon thereafter as is 
feasible. And, that the Presbytery of Orange would establish 10(^ per mile as 
reimbursement for travel. Standard vouchers are to be sent to all Committee 
Chairmen. 

It is the desire of the Council that each of the three Divisions of the 
Presbytery be responsible for one presentation concerning the life and work 
of the Church at a designated meeting in each calendar year.

month; i. e., January 27 at 6 p.m., First Presbyterian Church, Durham, N. C. 
and February 24, Conference Room, Office of Orange Presbytery, Burlington, 
N. C. 

RECOMMENDATION : 

1. That the Presbytery of Orange ratify and affirm all actions of the

2. That in nominating the Nominating Committee, the Council be in- | 
structed to consider the following guidelines: 

a. That the Council also nominate the Chairman of the Nominations 
Committee to Presbytery. 

b. That the Council request suggestions from the ministers and 
Sessions of the Presbytery. 

c. That the Committee consider the diverse nature of Orange Pres- 
bytery and take account of the various geographical areas, as well 
as adequate lay-clergy distribution in its nominations. 

d. That the Nominations Committee be constituted as follows: 

Class of 1972 Mrs. Billie Fansler 

Reverend Al Dimmock 
Reverend Tom B. Anderson

Reverend Jack Reckard 

Class of 1974 Mrs. Polly Whittington 

Reverend Milton Carothers 
Mr. Malcolm Williams 

DIVISION OF EDUCATION AND MISSION 

The report of the Steering Committee of the Division of Education and 
Mission was presented by Reverend Z. N. Holler, chairman, and was adopted. 

The Steering Committee for the Division of Education and Mission met 
first on December 13, 1971. At this meeting it was decided that we would 
meet on December 20 and thereafter on every other Monday afternoon 
through February in hopes that by that time the division will have been 
organized. We agreed that we see ourselves not as the Division of Education 
and Mission which is to be but as a steering committee assigned the task of 
designing and organizing this division. 

Jim Watkins and Sam Wiley were assigned the task of (a) determining 
exactly what financial and program obligations the new presbytery would 
have to meet in the area of mission in the immediate future and (b) re- 
commending expenditures or other action necessary to meet these obligations. 
Charles Williams and Bill Peters were given a similar responsibility in the 
area of education. As a result of the efforts and recommendations of these 
members, assisted by the steering committee and other members of the 
Presbytery who are knowledgeable in these areas, our committee has taken 
these actions to date: 

I MISSION 

1. An expenditure of $22,452 during January-April, 1972, has been author- 
ized for the continuation of salary supplements for aid-receiving 
churches, for urban ministries and for payment on a loan from the 
Board of National Ministries — all obligations already undertaken by 
Granville Presbytery's Church Extension Committee. 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery

2. An expenditure of $21,540 during January-April, 1972, has been author- 
ized for the continuation of salary supplements for home mission 
workers and aid-receiving churches, for urban ministries and for 
grants-in-aid obligations already undertaken by the Church Extension 
Committee of Old Orange Presbytery. 

It should be noted that in allocating funds for the salaries represented in 
these figures and in communicating with aid-receiving churches, the steering 
committee has complied with the new presbytery's action in establishing a 
minimum salary of $6,800 plus $1,600 auto allowance — total, $8,400. 

II EDUCATION 

1. A committee composed of Charles Williams plus representatives familiar 
with adult, youth and children's work in the old presbyteries has been 
established to continue general educational programming and planning 
for presbytery during January -April, 1972. The purpose of this structure 
is to enable presbytery to proceed with educational work already under- 
way and to provide an instrument for capitalizing on educational 
opportunities that happen to come our way during this transitional 
period. This frees the steering committee to address the question of 
basic priorities and planning for the future of the new presbytery. 

2. The camp and conference committees of the old presbyteries have been 
asked to continue to function as separate committees administering 
their respective camp programs through September 30, 1972. They have 
been asked to select a smaller group representative of both committees 
to coordinate their efforts and keep them in communication. 

3. The steering committee authorized expenditure of $23,285 in January- 
April, 1972, this figure based on the combined budget worked out by 
the former Christian Education Committees of Granville and Orange. 

4. In addition, the steering committee authorized expenditure of $1,092 
during January- April, 1972 in areas of educational concern which 
appear in the new presbytery's challenge budget as follows: Item 3, 
Worship; 4. Service; 5. Witness; World Missions and Evangelism; 
6. Christianity and Health, (The committee has some question about the 
propriety of including some of these items in the education budget. 
We hope to work these out in the near future.) 

5. The chairmen of World Missions in old Orange and Granville have 
been asked to be jointly responsible for missionary itineration and 
other promotion related to the mission season in 1972. 

Ill BUDGET SUMMARY 

The following items, therefore, have been authorized by the Education 
and Mission Steering Committee for expenditure during January-April, 1972. 



Mission expenditures, Granville $22,452.00 

Mission expenditures, old Orange 21,540.00 

Christian Education, combined budget 23,285.00 

Christian Education, items from 

Challenge Budget 1,092.00 

Total $68,369.00 



This figure is of course much less than one-third of our challenge budget- 
for two reasons: 

(1) We don't yet know what sort of working budget will emerge from 
the confrontation between the challenge budget and fiscal reality. 

(2) Having dealt with provision for meeting our inherited obligations, 
this committee is just beginning to move to its appointed task of 



38 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



designing a program of education and mission for the new presbytery. 
We have been somewhat conservative thus far in order that we may 
have resources for supporting important new tasks later. 

IV. AREA DCE 

The committee discussed at some length the relationship of the new pres- 
bytery to the area Director of Christian Education. We agreed that at present 
we do not know about our future program needs, our future executive leader- 
ship (General Presbyter and General Pastor), or the details of the area DCE's 
relation to Synod's Christian Education Office. Believing that all these items 
will affect long term plans for our relationship to an area DCE, the com- 
mittee took the following actions: 

1. Expressed to Sara McNeill the committee's desire that she continue 
in her present work through 1972 in hopes that before the end of 
that period the matters mentioned above will have been clarified. 

2. Expressed to Sara the committee's desire to stay in close communication 
with her, to seek her help in developing our plans and programs and 
keep her advised of any developments that might affect her future 
relationship with the presbytery. 

3. Requested that the Council of Presbytery move to clarify the relation- 
ship between the presbytery, the area DCE and the Synod Regional 
Director. 

A motion passed: That the Presbytery of Orange re-affirm the team 
concept of the relationship of Presbytery Executives and that in view of the 
fact that the primary purpose of the church is mission and that Presbytery's 
relationships with congregations and elders, as well as its general administra- 
tion, have as their goal the church's fulfillment of its mission, that this be 
clearly expressed by making the General Presbyter the chairman among the 
three executive officers of the Orange Presbytery Staff. 

CHURCH EXTENSION COMMITTEE 
(OLD ORANGE PRESBYTERY) 

Reverend Jerry C. McCann, representing the Church Extension Committee, 
Old Orange Presbytery, presented a gold cup to Reverend J. E. McMillan, a 
retired minister of the UPUSA Church who served the Presbytery for several 
years in a prison ministry at McLeansville, N. C. 

As retiring moderator, Reverend Tom B. Anderson, conducted a service 
of worship, reading from I Corinthians 1: 1-9 and preaching on the topic, 
"Let It Live, and Live It". 

Reverends Tom Anderson and Lee Adkins assisted by ruling elders of the 
host church, administered the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper.

Presbytery recessed for lunch at 12:30 with prayer by Reverend Tom B. 
Anderson.

40 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



Since the Commission on the Church and its Ministry has yet to be elected 
by New Orange Presbytery and since its responsibilities have devolved 
temporarily upon the Steering Committee of the Division of Elders, this 
Committee has co-opted the Commissions on the Minister and His Work of 
former Granville and Orange Presbyteries and presents this report of their 
actions with a recommendation. 

The following relationships existing between ministers and churches were 
dissolved upon request by the ministers and concurrence of the congregations 
they served: 

a. The associate pastoral relationship between Reverend John B. Rogers, 
Jr., and the First Church, Durham, effective January 31, 1972, in order 
that he might accept a call to become pastor of the Davidson College 
Church, Davidson, and be dismissed to the Presbytery of Mecklenburg. 

b. The associate pastoral relationship between Reverend Joseph Flora and 
the First Church, Greensboro, effective February 15, 1972, in order that 
he might accept a call to become Presbyterian University Minister at 
UNC, Greensboro. 

c. The pastoral relationship between Reverend Lewis Bledsoe and the 
Guilford Park Church, Greensboro, effective January 31, 1972, in order 
that he might accept a call to become pastor of the Steele Creek Church, 
Charlotte. 

Recommendation: — That Presbytery confirm the action of the former Com- 
missions on the Minister and His Work existing in Granville and Orange 
Presbyteries as of December 31, 1971 and co-opted by the Division of Elders 
of New Orange Presbytery.

A resolution was passed as follows:

in Greensboro, N. C. on December 5, 1971 as Community in Christ Presby- 
terian, and 

Whereas, the Trustees of Orange Presbytery presently hold title to a 
tract of property purchased for the church facility site, and 

Whereas, Community in Christ, Presbyterian, is ready to commence a 
building program; 

Be it resolved that the Presbytery of Orange hereby authorize the 
Trustees of Presbytery to take whatever legal action necessary to enable 
Community in Christ Presbyterian to implement its plans for a building 
on the property in southeast Guilford County designated for that purpose." 

ADMINISTRATIVE COMMISSION FOR THE SPRINGWOOD CHURCH 

Reverend Lowry McBath was appointed by Presbytery as chairman of the 
Administrative Commission for the Springwood Church (Old Orange Presby- 
tery). The moderator of Presbytery, Reverend Tom Anderson, will appoint 
one minister and one ruling elder to bring the number back to the original 
eight persons constituting the Commission. 

REPORT OF ADMINISTRATIVE COMMISSION 
GULF, HAYWOOD, GOLDSTON, FARMVILLE CHURCHES 

Reverend H. M. Raynal, Chairman, presented the report of the Adminis- 
trative Commission on Gulf, Haywood, Goldston and Farmville Churches. 
Since the Commission has not completed the tasks assigned to it, the Presby- 
tery directed this Commission to extend the time period allowed for com- 
pletion until at least the fall meeting of Presbytery. The report was found 
in order and admitted to record. 

At the October, 1971, meeting of Orange Presbytery, your Commission 
was created with the following instructions: 

That an Administrative Commission be appointed to investigate Gulf, Hay- 
wood, Goldston, and Farmville Churches due to their apparent inactivity over 
a period of years and that this Commission have the power to dissolve any 
one or all of the Churches by Decomber 31, 1971, if it sees fit and to dispose 
of the property. 

Reference is also made to the Book of Church Order dealing with adminis- 
trative commissions, particularly Sections 19-3, 19-4, and 118-1 through 118-5. 

Your Commission has met at length on three occasions. On Sunday, De- 
cember 12, 1971, the Commission travelled to hold meetings at Haywood 
Church and also at Gulf Church. 

At Haywood Church there was a friendly and thorough exchange of views 
and information with members of the Church and other persons. At Gulf 
Church there was a friendly and thorough exchange of views with members 
of the Churches of Gulf, Goldston, and Farmville. Members of Cumnock 
Church, which has certain inter-relationships with the Gulf and Farmville 
Churches, at their own request were permitted to attend the meeting at Gulf 
and express their views. 

Cumnock Church is now within the boundaries of Fayetteville Presbytery. 
Matters concerning it, which are not within the instructions of this Commis- 



46 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



sion, have been made the subject of an informal communication from mem- 
bers of the Commission to the Stated Clerk of Fayetteville Presbytery. 

Prior to the exchanges of information and views at the two meetings on 
December 12, the Commission prefaced discussion with a statement about 
property which is reflected in this resolution from the minutes of the 
Commission : 

It was unanimously RESOLVED that the Commission shall assure 
the church members in each instance, and it shall be the policy of the 
Commissions, that it shall not seek the reversion of the property of any 
dissolved church to Presbytery; RESOLVED FURTHER that the Com- 
mission shall cause the conveyance of such property to any resulting 
ongoing independent church, or other religious or charitable entity, arising 
from a dissolved church's membership, with the right reserved to Presby- 
tery to make any other disposition deemed advisable should there be no 
such resulting church or entity." 

The instructions of Presbytery and the Book of Church Order require the 
Commission to investigate, hold hearings, and allow notice to be given before 
the Commission's minutes are filed. It has not been possible to accomplish 
these things and arrive at the necessary decisions prior to December 31, 
1971. 

The matters before the Commission are somewhat complex, and are of 
importance to those most directly concerned. 

Since the Commission must report that it has not finished the tasks as- 
signed to it, it respectfully requests Orange Presbytery to take action either 

(a) To assign these tasks to a new Commission or 

(b) To reconstitute this Commission and to extend the time period al- 
lowed for completion of its tasks until at least the fall meeting of 
Presbytery. 

DIVISION OF ELDERS

sented by Reverend Curtis P. Harper, Jr., chairman and was adopted as a

DIVISION OF ELDERS 

The Steering Committee of the Division of Elders has met twice for a 
total of approximately nine hours since its election in November. Clarification 
of the Committee's duties in the context of presbytery's restructuring was an 
initial task requiring considerable time and effort. 

It became apparent that, regardless of the restructuring in process, the 
committee must concern itself immediately with continuing aspects of presby- 
tery's work, such as: the recruitment and care of candidates for the ministry; 
the search for, calls to, and transfer of, ministers; the examination of Ordi- 
nands and Ministers seeking admission to Presbytery; and the review of 
sessional records. 

In addition, the committee must define goals and objectives and design 
sub-structure for the Division of Elders regarding: the Sessions and their 
work; the relationship of non-parish Teaching Elders to Presbytery and their 
contribution to its mission; the continuing personal growth and professional 
education of Teaching Elders; and the preparation of Ruling Elders for their 
responsibilities as members of church courts. 

In considering this rather lengthy agenda, the committee must cope with 
the fact that we are a large Presbytery, numbering approximately 135 
churches and 175 ministers, and must define goals and objectives that are 
realistic for such a sizable judicatory of the church. These, then, have been 
concerns and considerations of the steering committee in its initial meetings.

The report of the Committee on Resolutions was presented by Reverend

This, the first Stated Meeting of new Orange Presbytery, is one that we 
will long remember. It is historic in its nature and bids us, however, to look 
to the future with confidence and faith. 

It is a privilege, therefore, to express deep appreciation to each and every- 
one who has given content to the success of this meeting: 

To Almighty God who has guided the Presbyteries of Orange and Gran- 
ville through the process of merging into one Presbytery; 

To the host church for the invitation to meet here; 

To the representatives who have attended and participated in the spirit of 
unity ; 

To the Moderator, Reverend Tom B. Anderson, who has presided with 
dignity, courtesy, and fairness; 

To Mrs. Joyce Bauer and Miss Gail York for the efficiency with which 
they have served as clerks; 

To the ladies who serve as registrars and those who provided refreshments 
during the course of the meeting; 

To the organist who furnished the music for the service of worship; 

To the minister (s) and Ruling Elders who led us in the celebration of the 
Sacrament of Holy Communion; 

To the Women of the Church who so thoughtfully prepared and served 
the very appetizing lunch; 

To all of these we say "thanks" and may the name of our Lord be praised, 

BILLS AND OVERTURES 

Reverend S. S. Wiley, chairman, presented an overture from the Com- 
munity In Christ, Presbyterian, to Orange Presbytery: 

Acting in accord with Section 15-6 (16) of the Book of Church Order and 
desiring that all the ruling elders of Orange Presbytery be afforded maximum 
possibility of participating in the meetings of the Presbytery without undue 
conflict with their work, the Session of Community in Christ, Presbyterian, 
respectfully overtures Orange Presbytery, meeting at First Presbyterian 
Church in Burlington, N. C. on January 18, 1972, to take the following action: 

To establish Saturday as the meeting day for the stated meetings of the 
Presbytery. 

The Overture was answered in the following manner: 

In regard to the Overture from the Session of Community in Christ, Pres- 
byterian, the Committee on Bills and Overtures recommends that attention

be called to Section 10, paragraph 1 of A Manual for Orange Presbytery 
which specifies that dates of Presbytery's meetings shall be set by the Docket 
and Liaison Committee of the Division of Court Operation. As the Manual 
now stands, therefore, this responsibility is left with that committee and a 
different policy would require a change in the Manual. 

Your committee on Bills and Overtures, how^ever, suggests that the Docket 
and Liaison Committee consider trying for a year having the January and 
April meetings of Orange Presbytery on Saturdays and the June and October 
meetings on Tuesdays, at the end of which time the procedure could be 
evaluated.

property in Greensboro and the possibility of leasing instead of selling

The following resolution was presented by the above mentioned com- 
mittee and was adopted: 

RESOLUTION— PROPERTY COMMITTEE 

The Ad Hoc Committee of the Council of the Presbytery of Orange, here- 
tofore appointed for the purpose of considering procedure for the dis- 
position of the property belonging to Presbytery on North Elm Street in 
Greensboro, North Carolina, formerly occupied as Presbytery's offices, 
having met and deliberated, recommends that the Council of the Presbytery 
of Orange be empowered to deal with this property to a conclusion inas- 
much as considerable investigation needs to be made as to market value, 
rental value, and details of negotiation which could be more satisfactorily 
handled by the Council than Presbytery, and that the following resolution 
to carry out this recommendation be adopted by Presbytery: 

WHEREAS ... it appears that the real property, consisting of a building 
and a lot on North Elm Street in Greensboro, North Carolina, formerly 
used as Presbytery's office, and now owned by Orange Presbytery will 
no longer be useful to Presbytery for any of its functions, and that it is 
therefore desirable to sell or lease the property at the most favorable 
market and condition; and, 

WHEREAS ... it appears to Presbytery that the investigation as to fair 
market value of the property and the optimum conditions as to whether 
to lease or sell could be determined more satisfactorily and in the best 
interest of Presbytery by the Council of the Presbytery of Orange; and, 

WHEREAS . . . Presbytery deems it a proper function of the Council to 
dispose of this business to a conclusion; 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED . . . That the Council of the 
Presbytery of Orange is hereby empowered and directed to make such 
investigation as it deems necessary in connection with the disposition of 
the real property of Orange Presbytery on North Elm Street in the City 
of Greensboro, North Carolina, consisting of a building and a lot of land 
formerly used as Presbytery's offices, in order to determine whether to 
lease the property or to sell it, and to conclude the sale transaction or 
lease transaction, whichever it determines to be the most advantageous, 
under the terms and conditions as said Council deems to be in the best 
interest of Presbytery; and, 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED . . . That the Trustees of Orange Presby- 
tery are hereby authorized and directed, in the name of Orange Presbytery, 
to sell and convey said real property and to execute a deed therefor to 
the purchaser upon receipt of the purchase price as determined by the 
Council, or to execute a lease agreement upon such terms and conditions 
as the Council may direct, and to conclude any such transaction and 
execute the necessary documents in the name of Orange Presbytery as 
the said Council directs. 

4. That the overture from the session of the First Presbyterian Church, 
Mebane, North Carolina concerning the disposition of the Orange Pras- 
bytery manse be answered by the Presbytery in the negative.

REPORT OF THE COMMISSION ON THE MINISTER 
AND HIS WORK 

Reverend S. S. Wiley, chairman, presented the report on the Commission 
on the Minister and His Work which was adopted: 

Since its appointment at the January 1972 meeting of Orange Presbytery 
the Interim Commission on the Church and Its Ministry has been functioning 
as the Commission on the Minister and His Work. It has met three times, at 
Durham on February 7, at Burlington on March 14, and again at Burlington, 
April 18. 

At the February meeting the Commission had benefit of the presence of 
the Reverend Curtis P. Harper, Jr., immediate past chairman of the Com- 
mission of "old" Granville Presi3ytery who is now chairman of the Steering 
Committee for the Division of Elders. In order to facilitate interaction be- 
tween the Commission and that Division consultations have continued with 
him. Advice has also been sought from the Reverend Lewis Bledsoe, former 
chairman of the Commission in "old" Orange Presbytery. 

The first full meeting of the Interim Commission was in March. At that 
time we sought an understanding of function including relation to the Division 
of Elders and coordination of procedures inherited from the two merging 
presbyteries. It was decided only through the Office of Presbytery, completed 
reference forms will be requested and a Commission member will summarize 
the data and reference forms for presentation to the entire Commission, which 
will then consider a minister for a particular church. If the minister is 
approved, the church may proceed and may call him or her without further 
action of the Commission being required, except approving the terms of the 
call. 

It is understood that during the "interim" the Commission, as commission, 
will hand (1) dismissions of ministers to other presbyteries and (2) problems 
arising in our congregations respecting relations between pastor and people; 
and as committee, it will be concerned with (1) facilitation and review of 
calls and (2) assistance in pulpit supply. 

With help from the Stated Clerk, the Commission has listed congregations 
seeking ministers and available persons who might be recommended. These 
lists are available. Attention of Presbytery is also called to the availability 
of a paper entitled "Ministerial Vacancies" issued periodically by the General 
Assembly's Permanent Committee on the Minister and His Work, which may 
be obtained from the Atlanta Committee (Office). 

The Commission in session has consulted with one minister seeking new 
work and with ruling elders from a congregation asking for counsel on a local 
problem. The chairman and other members of the Commission have assisted 
in other cases individually.. 

The Interim Commission recommends that the permanent Commission be 
more representative of the whole Presbytery of Orange. We have in mind 
here broader geographical representation and balanced inclusion of ministers 
and lay people. There are many able folk who should be enlisted in the vital 
operations of the Presbytery not now directly involved. It was this thought 
plus a desire to be free to work in the area of education and mission that led 
the present chairman to tender his resignation on February 23 when it was 
learned that the "interim" life of the Commission might be as long as a year. 
Another chairman will be nominated at the April meeting of Presbytery. That 
person is being introduced to the workings of the Commission, of Synod's 
Permanent Committee on the Minister and His Work, and of the Area Con- 
ference for Commission Chairmen and Executive Secretaries from the Synods 
and Presbyteries of Appalachia, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. 

The voluminous files of the Commission of "old" Orange Presbytery have 
been deposited for safekeeping at the office of the Stated Clerk. Acting for

the General Assembly's Committee. Data forms and references have been 
obtained for pulpit committees from the following churches: Church of the 
Covenant, First Church, Durham, First Church, Greensboro, Guilford Park, 
Hudson Memorial, New Hope (Wake County), First Church, Raleigh, Spring 
wood, Starmount, and Yanceyville. Work has been done with the Steering 
Committee of the Division of Education and Mission to assist in finding 
ministers for certain aid-receiving churches. Data forms from churches have 
been requested when required. Close liaison has been maintained with the 
Atlanta Office.

MANUAL OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

I. THE NATURE AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH 

God, who chose us to be His people, calls us to serve Him through worship 
and work. Therefore the Church must examine its common life, and Christians 
their private lives, to the end that all may live as servants of God obeying 
His commands. 

Christian worship depends upon and is a response to the presence of God, 
the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to what God has done for us and for 
our salvation, which we acknowledge by acts and adoration, confession, thanks- 
giving, petition and obedience. 

The Church worships as believers, sharing a common life of faith, hope, 
love and commitment, assemble in common public worship. Christians worship 
God privately as individuals and families. We worship always as members 
of the Body of Christ. 

The work of the Church is a response to God's grace and is done in 
obedience, to the will of God as this will is made known in Scripture. It is 
expressed in proclamation of and witness to the Word of God, and deeds of 
love and mercy. Through this service Christians seek the fulfillment of the 
divine purposes in society and history. 

(Preface, The Directory for the Worship and Work of the Church.) 

The Presbytery of Orange, as the dynamic connection of the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S. with the congregations and ministers of Alamance, Caswell, 
Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax, Johnston, Nash, 
Northampton, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, Vance, Wake and 
Warren Counties, seeks to carry out the above statement in all its forms, 
structures, and programs. 

The Presbytery has as its primary task to reflect the redemptive mission 
of Jesus Christ in all its functions as an Agency of Review, Sharing, Guidance, 
Training, Innovation, Linking and Pastoral oversight. 

Presbytery is a reviewing agency, evaluating its words and deeds that 
they are obedient to the will of God. 

Presbytery is a sharing agency, sharing with congregations and ministers 
its experience and insight in regard to the best use of resources and energies 
in witnessing to the Lordship of Christ in its locale. 

Presbytery is a guiding agency, challenging congregations and ministers 
to use their full capacities in meeting their mission in being the servant 
community. 

Presbytery is an innovative agency, initating and carrying out imaginative 
forms of ministry which could not normally be accomplished through the 
limited resources of the parish. 

Presbytery is a linking agency, binding Christians to Christ, higher courts 
to lower, local churches to each other, other Christian bodies in cooperation, 
in ONE mission of the Church. 

Presbytery is a pastoral agency, providing whatever support, insight or 
counseling may be needed by its sessions and ministers. 

Presbytery is a training agency, providing whatever education, resources 
or personnel necessary to accomplish its mission and the mission of its member 
Churches. 

Because mission must determine form. Presbytery must remain flexible in 
its attitude toward structure, responding to current opportunities for fulfilling 
its mission. While maintaining the integrity of the interconnected body, the 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 3 

Church does not exist for selfish reasons but for the service of God and to 
make visible the love of God at work in the world. Therefore, it must be 
capable of acting quickly and decisively in the Name of Christ. It must be 
ready to follow its Lord into the uncertain future, willing to risk all, even 
its organizational life, in obedience to Him. 

11. THE STRUCTURE OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

Orange Presbytery carries out its mission through three divisions: The 
Division of Education and Mission, The Division of Elders, and The Division 
of Court Operations. It exercises oversight of these three divisons through 
a Council. In addition, a Commission on the Church and its Ministry and a 
Commission on Presbytery's Minutes are empowered to act on behalf of 
Presbytery in certain limited areas. 

THE DIVISION OF ELDERS 

The Division of Elders acts primarily as a reviewing, training, and pastoral 
agency. It is headed by a General Pastor, who is ordinarily a 'leaching Elder 
and is composed of (1) Committee on the Session and its Work, (2) Committee 
on Candidates, Calls and Examination, and (3) Committee on the Non-Parish 
Teaching Elder. The chairman of each committee together with the General 
Pastor constitutes a steering committee to coordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on the Session and its Work reviews sessional records and 
the minister's work. At the invitation of the session or at its owtl initiative, it 
meets with the session of a church. Each church in the Presbytery would be 
visited at least once every three years. Before any visit, the session would 
be asked to conduct a self -evaluation of the progress of the Kingdom in the 
congregation and community. All committee findings go to the Commission on 
the Church and its Ministry. This committee is responsible for encouraging 
the continuing education of teaching elders and the training of church officers. 

The Committee on Candidates, Calls and Examinations encourages those 
called by God to ministry to respond positively to that call. It counsels with 
and gives guidance to them as they prepare themselves for service. It over- 
sees any in-service training. This committee is responsible for recommenda- 
tion's to Presbytery regarding calls or other w^ork, counseling with sessions con- 
cerning supply ministers (Stated, Interim, or Occasional) and counseling with 
pastoral nominating committees concerning pastoral calls. This committee 
examines all candidates for ordination and all ministers applying for member- 
ship in the Presbytery. 

The Committee on the Non-Parish Teaching Elder exercises Presbytery's 
concern for the ministry carried out by teaching elders who do not have 
supporting sessions. 

THE DIVISION OF EDUCATION AND MISSION 

The Division of Education and Mission acts primarily as a sharing, guiding, 
training, and innovative agency. It is headed by a General Presbyter, who may 
be either a Teaching or Ruling Elder, and is composed of (1) Committee on 
Education and (2) Committee on Mission. The chairman of each committee 
together with the general Presbyter constitutes a steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on Education shares its experience with and gives guidance 
to congregations in meeting their mission. It is concerned with commitment, 
education, home and family nurture, worship, service, witness and evangelism, 
and the physical health of the congregations and their members. The entire 
thrust of its work is to help congregations improve their mission by improving 
continuing programs as well as developing new programs or methods. It 
operates Presbytery's camps and conference grounds.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



The Committee on Mission is an innovative agency, carrying out direct 
mission in such areas as urban ministry, town and country ministry, media 
ministry, new church development, campus Christian life, inter-church rela- 
tions, and any other forms of experimental ministry. It gives guidance to 
urban councils, shares its experience with aid-receiving churches in improving 
ministry in town and country, establishes new churches, develops new techni- 
ques of ministry through use of mass media of newspapers, radio and tele- 
vision, links its work to the college campus, actively cooperates with other 
Christian bodies in ministry, and continuously tries new forms of ministry, 
including research, oversight and evaluation. 

THE DIVISION OF COURT OPERATIONS 

The Division of Court Operations is primarily a sharing and linking 
agency. It is headed by a Stated Clerk and Treasurer who, with staff assis- 
tance, personally performs many of the functions of the Division. Preferably, 
the Stated Clerk and Treasurer would be a Ruling Elder, familiar with busi- 
ness, 'ihe Division is composed of (1) Docket and Liaison Committee, (2) 
Finance Committee, and (3) Worship Committee. The chairman of the Docket 
and Liaison Committee and the chairman of the Finance Committee together 
with the Stated Clerk and Treasurer constitutes a Steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Docket and Liaison committee prepares the docket for each stated 
meeting of Presbytery. The docket will be submitted to the Council for their 
advice and consent at least two weeks before each stated meeting of Pres- 
bytery. The Stated Clerk and Treasurer will make available for study to 
representatives and members of Presbytery pertinent divisional reports, re- 
commendations, and the docket at least one week prior to each stated meeting 
of Presbytery. After each meeting of Presbytery, stated, called or adjourned, 
this same group of people constitute Presbytery's Commission to approve the 
minutes of the previous meeting. After approval, the Stated Clerk will be 
authorized to print and distribute them. This committee communicates deci- 
sions of higher courts and information from various Presbyterian agencies to 
the appropriate parts of Presbytery. It also communicates information from 
any part of Presbytery to higher courts of their agencies. 

The Finance Committee hears from the various divisions and agencies of 
Presbytery their requests for funds and prepares an appropriate budget. The 
budget will be submitted first to Council for their approval and then to 
Presbytery for their approval. This committee reviews and approves the total 
budget of aid-receiving churches before Presbytery benevolent funds can be 
released. This committee arranges for necessary audits and reports the 
results to Presbytery through the Council. This committee supervises deferred 
gifts, has responsibility for the maintenance of the physical property of 
Presbytery, will be in charge of any Presbytery-wide fund raising campaigns 
and will constitute Presbytery's link to the Glade Valley School. 

The Worship Committee will have charge of all worship services at any 
meeting of Presbytery. 

THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The Council of Presbytery consists of sixteen voting members and five ex- 
officio non-voting members. The Chairman of the Council, who is a voting 
member, shall be elected annually by Presbytery. No individual shall serve 
more than three successive terms as Chairman. There shall be three classes

commendations to it and Presbytery concerning the positions of General 
Presbyter, General Pastor, and Stated Clerk and Treasurer. 

PRESBYTERY COMMISSIONS 

The Commission on the Church and its Ministry exercises pastoral concern 
by visiting churches to inquire into and settle difficulties, especially those 
arising out of relationships between teaching elders and churches. No person

REPORT OF THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The report of the Council of Orange Presbytery was presented by the 
Reverend Wallace M. Alston, Jr., chairman. Mr. Alston introduced Mr. C. 1'. 
Boyd, a former Trustee of Orange Presbytery and the following resolution 
was adopted by Presbytery: 

"Charles T. Boyd — a Ruling Elder of the First Presbyterian Church, 
Greensboro, N. C, a former teacher of its Young Men's Bible Class, 
Chairman of the Trustees of Orange Presbytery, a former Moderator, 
and a distinguished attorney of the Greensboro bar — resigned in January 
1972 as a Presbytery Trustee after twenty-five years of active and use- 
ful service. 

Normally, the duties of a Presbytery Trustee are neither exacting nor 
productive. However, during his term in office, Charles Boyd constantly 
found new opportunities for service over and beyond the call of these 
Duties. He did this by recognizing the many ways in whch he could, 
as an attorney, contribute his legal ability and knowledge to the execu- 
tion of the office of Trustee. He served during a period in which Orange 
Presbytery, probably as never before in its history, engaged in 
activities requiring legal knowledge and skill to guide it in an orderly 
and efficient manner through its transactions. Charles Boyd furnished 
this legal knowledge and skill on occasions too numerous to mention. 
During his twenty-five years of office, he has given literally thousands 
of dollars worth of legal services to Orange Presbytery without charge. 
He has examined titles, prepared deeds, deeds of trust, and notes, 
negotiated sales and loans, rendered opinions on wills and trusts and 
prepared contracts; he has handled matters involving the condemnation 
of property and, in one matter, dealt for more than a year with a com- 
plex problem concerning payments on the office building in Greensboro; 
he has prepared resolutions for borrowing money and selling property; 
he has advised concerning litigation; and he has in many other ways 
used his talents in bountiful measure for the benefit of Orange 
Presbytery. 

Those occupying the Office of Executive Secretary have found in him 
a source of sound and good advice on secular problems confronting this 
Church Court. His door has always been open to them and he has made 
his time and advice available when sought, and those who sought have 
profited thereby. 

It is obvious that the work of this Presbytery depends upon the 
voluntary contributions of many people; without these contributions, 
it could not exist. All such persons deserve its gratitude, but Charles 
Boyd especially deserves its commendation, not only for the magnitude 
of his contributions of time and talent, but also for the cheerful and 
co-operative attitude with which they have been rendered. On occasions, 
he has, without doubt, been imposed upon. He has many times been asked 
to lay aside other important matters to take up some task for Orange 
Presbytery. He has always done so without complaint and invariably 
with a smile. He has given such an impression of deriving joy from 
this work that no one could doubt his emotion was geniune. 

To sum it up, let it be recognized that for twenty-five years he has 
rendered great service to Orange Presbytery as one of its Trustees that 
his service has been cheerfully and willingly rendered, that the dedica- 
tion of his time and talent has been inspired by his Christian faith, and 
that this Presbytery has profited immeasurably by all that he has done.

BE IT RESOLVED, THEREFORE, by Orange Presbytery that it

standing service rendered by Charles T. Boyd as one of its trustees

Mr. Boyd was presented a plaque from the Council of the Presbytery^

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



A Resolution from the session of the Westminster Presbyterian Churchy 
Durham, was adopted relative to the Reverend Charles Williams: 

"On March 29, 1963, Charles Williams as Minister of the Mt. Olive Pres- 
byterian Church, Mt. Olive, N. C, accepted a call to come to Durham and 
to be the first Minister of the Westminster Presbyterian Church then 
undergoing organization. At the time of acceptance, there were eight 
families pledged to the Church as the meager congregation, no manse^ 
no church buildings, and no definite salary finalized. Charles Williams 
accepted this call in faith and came with a single purpose, to perform a 
teaching ministry. 

Charles Williams was bom in Halifax, N. C, was educated at Davidson 
College and Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, Virginia, grad- 
uated from the Seminary cum laude and after one year of graduate work 
with some interim pastorates carried out a happy and satisfying minis- 
try for five years in Mt. Olive. His wife Nancy, is a native of Eureka, 
North Carolina; they have two daughters. 

Charles Williams came to Durham in both faith and love and over a 
period of nine years, has shared in the gathering of a congregation and 
the building of it in behalf of the Church and the Kingdom. He has ap- 
plied himself to the tasks of preaching, teaching and pastoral work with- 
out reference to time or convenience to himself. He has stimulated both 
his Session and Diaconate as well as his entire congregation to look 
outward and upward and to look toward the Scriptures for life itself. He 
has taught us love, unselfishness and how to be humble and still get a 
job done. He has led this church through difficult times in its infancy 
and has lived a Christian example among us. 

Whereas, Charles Williams has now been called to serve in another por- 
tion of the kingdom, be it resolved and recorded in the minutes of the 
Session of the Westminster Church of Durham, North Carolina, and the 
minutes of Orange Presbytery that he is being given permission to 
resign and to leave for this work, in faith and with our love, and — as 
has been felt by all of us, said by many of us and observed by virtually 
all who have come in contact with him, "This surely, is a man of God." 

Request was made by the Reverend Eugene Ensley to grant the Commis- 
sion on the Minister and His Work permission and authorization to make 
a decision permitting Candidate David Osborne to serve an intern year 
in the Northside Church (without a pastor). A motion passed to this 
effect. 

REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY 

A thirty minute overview of the meeting of the 112th General Assembly

sion on the Minister and His Work, wishes to respond to a Call 
and move onto the field prior to his ordination, the Examining 
Committee shall, upon such notice from the candidate, require him 
to forward a copy of all his 'parts of trial' to the chairman, and 
to present himself before the full Committee at a time agreed upon 
for examination, the church, agency, or institution prosecuting the 
Call to bear the expense of the candidate in attendance. If the 
examination is sustained as satisfactory, the chairman of the 
Examining Committee shall advise both the candidate and those 
prosecuting the call that the way is clear to move onto the field, 
but that preparatory to ordination, examination on the floor of 
Presbytery must be sustained by the Court itself, and that Com- 
mittee approval does not bind the action of Presbytery in any way. 
Only then is a commission to ordain and install appointed."

shall require him to present himself before the Committee, or a

tion, the church, agency, or institution issuing the Call (or the 
Presbytery in the case of the Church's inability to assume this 
responsibility) to bear the expense of the minister in attendance. 
If the examination is sustained as satisfactory, the chairman of the 
Examining Committee shall advise both the minister and those 
prosecuting the Call that the way is clear to move onto the field, but 
that before reception as a member of Orange Presbytery, examina- 
tion on the floor of Presbytery must be sustained by the Court 
itself and that committee approval does not bind the action of 
Presbytery in any way. Only then is a Commission to install the 
minister-elect appointed."

ADMINISTRATIVE COMMISSION OF SPRINGWOOD CHURCH 

The Reverend Lowry McBath reported the completed work of the Adminis- 
trative Commission of the Springwood Church, which was adopted by Presby- 
tery: 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



51 



The Administrative Commission was constituted as a result of Orange 
Presbytery's action relative to a former Administrative Commission's direc- 
tives reported at the 412th stated meeting of Orange Presbytery, October 24, 
1968. Section II, part D of that report: "That a new Administrative Commis- 
sion be appointed by the current moderator of Orange Presbytery to serve 
until December 31, 1969, or until such time as all of the conditions have been 
met, a new minister called and a new Session elected and instructed. In the 
interim, the new Administrative Commission shall serve as the session of the 
Springwood Church." That report also stated that the pastoral relationship 
between the pastor and the church be dissolved effective December 31, 196b. 
The report further stated that the session of the church was dissolved and that 
the new Commission was to serve as the session. All this was accomplished in 
good order. 

The present Commission was appointed and began to function as the Ses- 
sion of Springwood as follows: Ministers, Lewis W. Bledsoe, Chairman of the 
Commission and Moderator of the Session, William E. Massey, Jr., W. Dowry 
McBath, William R. Strickland, Jr.; Ruling Elders, W. S. Harris, Jr., Secretaiy 
of the Commission and Clerk of Session, Staley Garrison, Jay Gilliland, and 
Herbert Reese. 

From the beginning of this Commission's relationship with the Springwood 
Church, members and especially members in positions of leadership exhibited 
a genuine concern over their church's plight and demonstrated their willing- 
ness to work toward correcting their problems and establishing a unified 
church with a meaningful ministry. The Commission was impressed by their 
true spirit of cooperation. 

In order to establish rapport with the membership, members of the Com- 
mission conducted the Sunday morning worship services and preached during 
the month of January, 1969 after the pastoral relationship had been dissolved. 

The Commission/Session called Dr. T. Henry Patterson as Supply Pastor in 
February 1969. With his wise counsel and sensitive pastoral leadership, 
Springwood Church demonstrated significant spiritual gain and response. Wor- 
ship services were well attended, church school attendance increased and Sun- 
day evening activities such as children and youth fellowships, family suppers 
and worship were re-initiated. A Church Council of fourteen members were 
established to aid the pastor and to involve the people in the leadership of the 
church. The Deacons of the church continued to function as a Board and Com- 
mission/Session met with the Council on a monthly basis. 

At the end of May, 1969, a Student Pastor, Mr. Roger Jackie, Union Theo- 
logical Seminary, Richmond, Va., was called to serve the summer months. He 
lived in the manse with his family and gave his full concern to the church and 
the community. The Commission/Session was particularly heartened by the 
response of the people to his leadership. The church continued to show sure 
signs of healing and spiritual growth. In this period, the Reverend Galen 
Elliott and the Reverend Milton Foust were appointed to the Commission to 
replace Strickland and Massey, both of whom had moved from the Presbytery. 
Also, during this time sections A and C of the Former Administrative Com- 
mission's Report filed with the Stated Clerk of Presbytery on September 30, 
1968, were rescinded (see minutes, 415th stated meeting of Orange Presbytery, 
June 26, 1969) and responsibility for the reorganization of the Session of the 
Springwood Church and the calling of a new minister was placed in the hands 
of the new Commission. 

The Reverend Worth Watts, pastor of the nearby Trinity Church at Elon 
College was secured with the consent of his Session as the Stated Supply 
Pastor for Springwood Church and included approximately two days per 
week of his time for pastoral duties in the community. This relationship was 
subject to review on a three month basis. Under the leadership of Mr. Watts, 
the Church Council and the Commission/Session, nine Ruling Elders were 
elected in accordance with newly approved By-laws of the congregation v/hich 



52 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



provided for a rotation system of church officers on a three year, three class 
basis and which placed the responsibilities of the Board of Deacons into the 
hands of the Church Session. It was felt by all concerned that sources of 
leadership in the congregation (approximately 140 members) were not ade- 
quate to provide for a Session and a Board of Deacons on a rotation basis and 
that a nine member Session plus pastor could fulfill such a function respon- 
sibly. After almost two years in operation, this system has proved functional 
and popular. The elected Ruling Elders were trained for their office by mem- 
bers of the Commission, then ordained and installed January 4, 1970 at which 
time the new Session of Springwood Church was constituted. 

The ministerial arrangement with the Reverend Worth Watts continued 
to September 1970; with the new Session governing the church under the 
guidance of the Chairman of the Commission and individual Commission 
members. The Reverend John Fleming served as Interim Supply from October, 
1970 through June, 1971, and the Reverend Cecil Callis, the present Interim 
Supply pastor began his ministry at that point. 

In January of this year the Reverend Don Trent was appointed to the 
Commission to replace Bledsoe who moved from the Presbytery and Mr. Jack 
West was appointed to replace Gilliland of the First Church, Sanford, now in 
Fayetteville Presbytery due to the realignment of Presbytery bounds. McBath 
was at that time named chairman. 

In the last meeting of the Commission September 17, 1972 with the Session 
and pastor of Springwood Church, a review of the past four years was given 
and an evaluation made. It was noted that the Session had guided the congre- 
gation to delay the calling of a resident minister until such time when through 
growth in stewardship, the church would not deplete its funds on ministerial 
support alone but would have some funds for a reasonable program as well. 
It was pointed out, also, that the church had entered into a program to aid 
the economically deprived in the surrounding community. These were among a 
number of substantial signs of spiritual renewal and growth in grace the 
Commission noted. It was the unanimous feeling of the Commission that the 
time had come when the Commission could withdraw its relationship to Spring- 
wood Church with confidence that its purpose has been fulfilled. 

The Springwood Administrative Commission therefore directs the Presby- 
tery to the following action; 

1. That the Springwood Commission be dissolved because we feel our work 
has been completed and that Springwood Church, under the guidance of 
its Session and the Reverend Cecil C. Callis, Interim Supply Pastor, is 
carrying on a successful program in the Springwood Community. 

2. That the Session of Springwood Church be commended for its successful 
efforts in bringing the congregation together in peace and Christian love 
and in providing the leadership to enable the church to continue its mis- 
sion of service to Christ and mankind. Filed with Stated Clerk, September 
29, 1972. 

Appreciation was expressed to the Commission by Orange Presbytery. 

RESOLUTIONS 

The report of the Committee on Resolutions was presented by the chair- 
man, the Reverend Warren Brannon and was unanimously adopted: 

The Committee on Resolutions presents the following resolutions for con- 
sideration and adoption to the Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Orange 
sideration and adoption to the Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Orange, 
24, 1972: 

"Whereas, the pastor, the officers and the congregation of the Starmount 
Church have displayed gracious generosity and dazzlng courage in invit- 
ing the descent of the court upon their quarters for a day, 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



53 



Whereas, the citizens of the Starmount congregation greeted members of 
Presbytery with an outstanding warmth and provided for our needs with 
wisdom and efficiency, 

Whereas, the Women of the Starmount Church planned with obvious care 
and prepared and served with much love a fine meal, 

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Presbytery of Orange extend to 
the Pastor, the officers, the Women's organization, and all the folks of 
the Starmount Church its profound thanks for their thorough prepara- 
tion for our meeting and for providing the facilities and atmosphere 
necessary for the accomplishment of the work of the court." 

ANNUITIES AND RELIEF 

The Reverend Ralph Teasley, chairman, presented the following recom- 
mendations which were adopted: 

1. That churches be encouraged to seek gifts, legacies, and trusts from 
interested individuals to supplement the existing trusts for retired 
ministers throughout the Synod. 

2. That churches and individuals also be encouraged to find ways of pro- 
viding additional funds to aid widows of ministers of the Synod. 

3. That the Sessions of all churches in the Presbytery of Orange urge a 
generous Joy Gift this Christmas since this supplemental offering is a 
major source of income with which the Board of Annuities and Relief 
ministers to the aged servants of the Church. The continued rise of the 
cost of living is making increasing demands upon the resources of 
Ministerial Relief, and this responsibility of the Church can only be met 
with a generous Supplemental Offering. 

TRUSTEES OF PRESBYTERY 

The report of the Trustees of Orange Presbytery was presented by Joyce 
Bauer, trustee. Information was related on the status of the Pinnix Estate 
being in litigation with attorney, Richard Wharton, representing Orange 
Presbytery Trustees. Under the provisions of the will of the late Frances R. 
Somers, Orange Presbytery should receive a house and 2 acres of land near 
Greensboro, N. C. The following resolution w^as adopted concerning the 
Somers estate. 

"Resolved that the report and recommendation of the Trustees of Orange 
Presbytery with reference to the Frances R. Somers property as submitted 
to this meeting be and the same is hereby approved, and the Trustees of 
Orange Presbytery are hereby authorized by Orange Presbytery to investigate 
and evaluate the rights and position of Orange Presbytery with respect to 
such property as was devised to it under Item II of the Will of Frances R. 
Somers and to make such settlement, execute such conveyance or release, 
participate in any legal proceedings seeking to determine the interest of 
Orange Presbytery under said Will and take such action as the Trustees may 
determine appropriate and for the best interest of Orange Presbytery with 
respect to the interests which Orange Presbytery acquired under Will of 
Frances R. Somers, without necessity for further authorization or confirma- 
tion by Orange Presbytery." 

TIME AND PLACE OF NEXT MEETING 

The next stated meeting of the Presbytery of Orange will be in the First 
Presbyterian Church, High Point, North Carolina, Saturday, February 3, 
1973, convening at 9:00 a.m.

URGE YOUR FELLOW CHRISTIANS TO REMEMBER 
IN THEIR WILLS THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH 
AND ITS INSTITUTIONS 

FORM OF BEQUEST 

"I , give, devise, and bequeath to 

the Trustees of Orange Presbytery of the Synod of North Carolina (here 
insert amount of money or estate bequeathed) for the use of the Master's 
work as supported by the Presbytery of Orange." 

(Here state whether the income from the bequest, or the bequest itself 
is to be used; the cause for which it is to be used can be stated, or it may 
be stated that it can be left to the judgment of the Presbytery.) 

BEQUEST FOR THE MASTER'S WORK 

The Presbytery is sure there are a large number of people who would like 
to leave at least a part of their money or property where it will be a per- 
petual help in the work of the Master. It therefore suggests to these friends 
that in their wills they make their bequests to the Trustees of Orange Presby- 
ery Synod of North Carolina, to be held by them as trust funds, and to be 
invested by them in good securities; the income from the investments to be 
given by the Presbytery, from time to time, to that cause or institution which 
in its judgment appears to be the most deserving. 

"There are many advantages in leaving your bequests in this way: 

"1. The Trustees are good business men and the security of the funds will 
be safeguarded. 

"2. The Presbytery can judge better ten or fifty years from the present 
time than you can now, where your money will do the most good at that time. 

"3. Because of special conditions, some year, one cause or institution may 
be in great financial need, and the Presbytery could vote to give the income 
to that cause that year: in fact, where it was most needed each year."

MANUAL OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

I. THE NATURE AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH 

God, who chose us to be His people, calls us to serve Him through worship 
and work. Therefore the Church must examine its common life, and Christians 
their private lives, to the end that all may live as servants of God obeying 
His commands. 

Christian worship depends upon and is a response to the presence of God, 
the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to what God has done for us and for 
our salvation, which we acknowledge by acts and adoration, confession, thanks- 
giving, petition and obedience. 

The Church worships as believers, sharing a common life of faith, hope, 
love and commitment, assemble in common public worship. Christians worship 
God privately as individuals and families. We worship always as members 
of the Body of Christ. 

The work of the Church is a response to God's grace and is done in 
obedience to the will of God as this will is made known in Scripture. It is 
expressed in proclamation of and witness to the Word of God, and deeds of 
love and mercy. Through this service Christians seek the fulfillment of the 
divine purposes in society and history. 

(Preface, The Directory for the Worship and Work of the Church.) 

The Presbytery of Orange, as the dynamic connection of the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S. with the congregations and ministers of Alamance, Caswell, 
Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax, Johnston, Nash, 
Northampton, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, Vance, Wake and 
Warren Counties, seeks to carry out the above statement in all its forms, 
structures, and programs. 

The Presbytery has as its primary task to reflect the redemptive mission 
of Jesus Christ in all its functions as an Agency of Review, Sharing, Guidance, 
Training, Innovation, Linking and Pastoral oversight. 

Presbytery is a reviewing agency, evaluating its words and deeds that 
they are obedient to the will of God. 

Presbytery is a sharing agency, sharing with congregations and ministers 
its experience and insight in regard to the best use of resources and energies 
in witnessing to the Lordship of Christ in its locale. 

Presbytery is a guiding agency, challenging congregations and ministers 
to use their full capacities in meeting their mission in being the servant 
community. 

Presbytery is an innovative agency, initating and carrying out imaginative 
forms of ministry which could not normally be accomplished through the 
limited resources of the parish. 

Presbytery is a linking agency, binding Christians to Christ, higher courts 
to lower, local churches to each other, other Christian bodies in cooperation, 
in ONE mission of the Church. 

Presbytery is a pastoral agency, providing whatever support, insight or 
counseling may be needed by its sessions and ministers. 

Presbytery is a training agency, providing whatever education, resources 
or personnel necessary to accomplish its mission and the mission of its member 
Churches. 

Because mission must determine form. Presbytery must remain flexible in 
its attitude toward structure, responding to current opportunities for fulfilling 
its mission. While maintaining the integrity of the interconnected body, the 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery

Church does not exist for selfish reasons but for the service of God and to 
make visible the love of God at work in the world. Therefore, it must be 
capable of acting quickly and decisively in the Name of Christ. It must be 
ready to follow its Lord into the uncertain future, willing to risk all, even 
its organizational life, in obedience to Him. 

11. THE STRUCTURE OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

Orange Presbytery carries out its mission through three divisions: The 
Division of Education and Mission, The Division of Elders, and The Division 
of Court Operations. It exercises oversight of these three divisons through 
a Council. In addition, a Commission on the Church and its Ministry and a 
Commission on Presbytery's Minutes are empowered to act on behalf of 
Presbytery in certain Limited areas. 

THE DIVISION OF ELDERS 

The Division of Elders acts primarily as a reviewing, training, and pastoral 
agency. It is served by a General Pastor, who is ordinarily a Teaching Elder. 
The concerns of the Division include (1) the work of Pastors and Sessions, (2) 
the preparation and location of Teaching Elders and, (3) the work of Non- 
Parish Teaching Elders. Representatives of each concern, together with the 
General Pastor, form a Steering Committee for coordinating the work of the 
Division. The Chairman of the Commission on the Minister and His Work shall 
serve as a member of this Steering Committee. The Committee functions of 
the Commission on the Minister and His Work (BCO 21-2) will ordinarily be 
carried out by the Division of Elders. 

The concern for the work of Pastors and Sessions is expressed through 
efforts to enhance their effectivenes, such as review of sessional records, 
periodic review and evaluation of their ministries and continuing support ac- 
tivities designed to increase their competence as Christian leaders within the 
Presbyterian system. 

The concern for the preparation and location of Teaching Elders is ex- 
pressed through exercising care for Candidates for the Ministry, through over- 
seeing all calls to ministry, through examining ministers who are seeking 
membership in Presbytery, through helping churches that are seeking minis- 
ters and through facilitating pastoral changes. 

The concern for the work of Non-Parish Teaching Elders is expressed 
through counsel and recommendation as to the validity of their work, through 
regular evaluation as to the effectiveness of their ministry, through utilization 
of their experience and insights, through encouraging their growth in minis- 
terial competence, and through providing opportunities for fellowship, support 
and participation in the work of the Presbytery. 

The Division is invested by Presbytery with full authority to initiate pro- 
grams and activities appropriate to these concerns. 

THE DIVISION OF EDUCATION AND MISSION 

The Division of Education and Mission acts primarily as a sharing, guiding, 
training, and innovative agency. It is headed by a General Presbyter, who may 
be either a Teaching or Ruling Elder, and is composed of (1) Committee on 
Education and (2) Committee on Mission. The chairman of each committee 
together with the general Presbyter constitutes a steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on Education shares its experience with and gives guidance 
to congregations in meeting their mission. It is concerned with commitment, 
education, home and family nurture, worship, service, witness and evangelism, 
and the physical health of the congregations and their members. The entire 
thrust of its work is to help congregations improve their mission by improving 
continuing programs as well as developing new programs or methods. It 
operates Presbytery's camps and conference grounds.

The Committee on Mission is an innovative agency, carrying out direct 
mission in such areas as urban ministry, town and country ministry, media 
ministry, new church development, campus Christian life, inter-church rela- 
tions, and any other forms of experimental ministry. It gives guidance to 
urban councils, shares its experience with aid-receiving churches in improving 
ministry in town and country, establishes new churches, develops new techni- 
ques of ministry through use of mass media of newspapers, radio and tele- 
vision, links its work to the college campus, actively cooperates with other 
Christian bodies in ministry, and continuously tries new forms of ministry, 
including research, oversight and evaluation. 

THE DIVISION OF COURT OPERATIONS 

The Division of Court Operations is primarily a sharing and linking 
agency. It is headed by a Stated Clerk and Treasurer who, with staff assis- 
tance, personally performs many of the functions of the Division. Preferably, 
the Stated Clerk and Treasurer would be a Ruling Elder, familiar with busi- 
ness. The Division is composed of (1) Docket and Liaison Committee, (2) 
Finance Committee, and (3) Worship Committee. The chairman of the Docket 
and Liaison Committee and the chairman of the Finance Committee together 
with the Stated Clerk and Treasurer constitutes a Steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Docket and Liaison committee prepares the docket for each stated 
meeting of Presbytery. The docket will be submitted to the Council for their 
advice and consent at least two weeks before each stated meeting of Pres- 
bytery. The Stated Clerk and Treasurer will make available for study to 
representatives and members of Presbytery pertinent divisional reports, re- 
commendations, and the docket at least one week prior to each stated meeting 
of Presbytery. After each meeting of Presbytery, stated, called or adjourned, 
this same group of people constitute Presbytery's Commission to approve the 
minutes of the previous meeting. After approval, the Stated Clerk will be 
authorized to print and distribute them. This committee communicates deci- 
sions of higher courts and information from various Presbyterian agencies to 
the appropriate parts of Presbytery. It also communicates information from 
any part of Presbytery to higher courts of their agencies. 

The Finance Committee hears from the various divisions and agencies of 
Presbytery their requests for funds and prepares an appropriate budget. The 
budget will be submitted first to Council for their approval and then to 
Presbytery for their approval. This committee reviews and approves the total 
budget of aid-receiving churches before Presbytery benevolent funds can be 
released. This committee arranges for necessary audits and reports the 
results to Presbytery through the Council. This committee supervises deferred 
gifts, has responsibility for the maintenance of the physical property of 
Presbytery, will be in charge of any Presbytery-wide fund raising campaigns 
and will constitute Presbytery's link to the Glade Valley School. 

The Worship Committee will have charge of all worship services at any 
meeting of Presbytery.

The Council of Presbytery consists of sixteen voting members and five ex- 
officio non-voting members. The Chairman of the Council, who is a voting

more than three successive terms as Chairman. There shall be three classes

Presbyter, General Pastor, and Stated Clerk and Treasurer. 

PRESBYTERY COMMISSIONS 

The Commission on the Minister and His Work exercises pastoral concern 
by visiting churches to inquire into and settle difficulties, especially those aris- 
ing out of relationships between Teaching Elders and churches (BCO 21-3). 
The Commission is also empowered to dissolve pastoral relationships when 
both pastor and church are in accord. To facilitate the work of the Commission

Church Order (Par. 21-2) will ordinarily be carried out by the Division of 
Elders. To assure their implementation, the Chairman of the Commission shall 
be a member of the Steering Committee of the Division of Elders.

real property in the name of Presbytery.

conmiittees shall expire at the adjournment of the session. They shall be 
given their duties by Presbytery when they are appointed.

REPORT OF DIVISION OF ELDERS, CONTINUED 

Since the last meeting of Presbytery, the Division of Elders' temporary 
Steering Committee has met monthly v^ith the objective of presenting its 
final report to Presbytery concerning the goal, objectives, and organization 
of the Division of Elders. The conclusions presented in this report were 
reached not only after a year's deliberation by members of the Steering Com- 
mittee, but also in consultation with the Commission on the Minister and His 
Work through its chairman, the Reverend Eugene Ensley, and with the Com- 
mittee on the Manual through its chairman, the Reverend Charles Fitzpatrick. 

The goal of the Division of Elders is to support, strengthen, and serve 
the leadership of the Church within the bounds of Orange Presbytery. The 
Division's objectives, or concerns, are broadly defined in the proposed revision 
of the Presbytery Manual which is presented herewith: 

The Division of Elders acts primarily as a reviewing, training, and 
pastoral agency. It is served by a General Pastor, who is ordinarily a 
Teaching Elder. The concerns of the Division include (1) the work of 
Pastors and Sessions, (2) the preparation and location of Teaching Elders 
and, (3) the work of Non-Parish Teaching Elders. Representatives of each 
concern, together with the General Pastor, form a Steering Committee 
for coordinating the work of the Division. The Chairman of the Commis- 
sion on the Minister and His Work shall serve as a member of this 
Steering Committee. The Committee functions of the Commission on the 
Minister and His Work (BCO 21-2) will ordinarily be carried out by the 
Division of Elders. 

The concern for the work of Pastors and Sessions is expressed 
through efforts to enhance their effectiveness, such as review of sessional 
records, periodic review and evaluation of their ministries and continuing 
support activities designed to increase their competence as Christian 
leaders within the Presbyterian system. 

The concern for the preparation and location of Teaching Elders is 
expressed through exercising care for Candidates for the Ministiy, 
through overseeing all calls to ministry, through examining ministers 
who are seeking membership in Presbytery, through helping churcher. 
that are seeking ministers and through facilitating pastoral changes. 

The concern for the work of Non-Parish Teaching Elders is expressed 
through counsel and recommendation as to the validity of their work, 
through regular evaluation as to the effectiveness of their ministry, 
through utilization of their experience and insights, through encouraging 
their growth in ministerial competence, and through providing opportuni- 
ties for fellowship, support and participation in the work of the 
Presbytery. 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



37 



The Division is invested by Presbytery with full authority to initiate 
programs and activities appropriate to these concerns. 

Presbytery Commissions — The Commission on the Minister and His 
Work exercises pastoral concern by visiting churches to inquire into and 
settle difficulties, especially those arising out of relationships between 
Teaching Elders and churches (BCO 21-3). The Commission is also 
empowered to dissolve pastoral relationships w^hen both pastor and church 
are in accord. To facilitate the work of the Commission the Committee 
responsibilities of the Commission as specified in the Book of Church 
Order (Par. 21-2) will ordinarily be carried out by the Division of Elders. 
To assure their implementation, the Chairman of the Commission shall 
be a member of the Steering Committee of the Division of Elders. 

Pending Presbytery's adoption of this proposed manual revision concerning 
the Division of Elders, the implementation of its objective will be through 
the following committees: 

The Committee on the Session and Its Work, which will be concerned with 
reviewing Sessional Records and with enabling Sessions to work effectively 
in leading their congregations in the church's ministries; 

The Committee on Calls and Vacancies, which will seek to assist churches in 
their search for ministerial leadership, and to facilitate the process of 
ministerial changes; 

The Committee on Non-Parish Teaching Elders which will evaluate their work, 
encourage them in their growth personally and professionally, seek to enable 
them to participate fully in the fellowship and the mission of Presbytery; 

The Committee on Candidates, w^hich, with Church Sessions, will encourage 
persons who give evidence of being called by God to sei-ve as Ordained 
Ministers to come under the care of Presbytery, and which will be the agency 
of Presbytery's care and counsel during their preparation for ordination; 

The Committee on Examinations which will assign examination parts to 
candidates for ordination and will examine all Candidates and Ministers 
seeking admission to the Presbytery; 

The Committee on Professional Services which will offer assistance to the 
leadership of the church through developing resources for personal counseling, 
personal growth, vocational assessment and continuing education; 

The Committee on Compensation which will recommend remuneration stand- 
ards for the church's professional leadership and seek to insure that the 
financial needs of retired servants of the Church are adequately met. 

With the exception of the Committee on the Session and Its Work and 
the Committee on Calls and Vacancies, the committees will be composed of 
a chairman, who will be elected annually and may serve no more than three 
consecutive terms, and nine members, who will serve terms of three years in 
three consecutive classes of three members each. 

The membership of the Committee on the Session and Its Work and the 
Committee on Calls and Vacancies will be based on a regional grouping of 
churches, with one member elected to each of these committees from each 
regional group. Together and in behalf of the Division, these two committee- 
men vvdll sei've as a support-service team with particular responsibility for 
the churches in their regional group. 

Since all of these committees are concerned with matters of vital interest 
to the Church's leadership and are of strategic significance to the Church's 
nature and mission, the membership of each committee will be elected by the 
Presbytery. The relatively large size of the committees is designed to involve 



38 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



as many of Presbytery's constituency as feasible so that the Division will be 
most responsive to needs, representative of views, and responsible in its work. 

The work of the Division will be coordinated by a Steering Committee 
composed of the General Pastor as Chairman, the Chairman of the Commission 
on the Minister and His Work, and representatives of the committees within 
the Division. 

The Division will be represented in the Council of Presbytery by the 
General Pastor as an advisory member and by two voting members: One, 
from the Committee on the Session and Its Work and one, from the Committee 
on Calls and Vacancies. One of these voting members must be a layman. 

This structure for the Division of Elders has been developed in accordance 
with the Presbytery Manual pending adoption of proposed revisions. It is 
understood that the manual authorizes the Division to alter its organization 
and to adopt such standing rules as may become necessary for the effective 
implementation of its objectives as defined in the Manual. 

The Temporary Steering Committee, having considered the goal and 
objectives of the Division of Elders with as much care and competence as 
it could bring to its assigned task, presents this final report concerning the 
Division's structure with confidence that it is functionally feasible and with 
hope that it will prove adequate as the Division nov/ becomes fully operative. 
Recommendations : 

1. That the Proposed Revision of the Presbytery Manual be adopted and 
docketed for review at the end of one year, at which time Presbytery, if 
it deems it advisable, will seek clarification on its constitutionality. 

2. That Presbytery suspend the rules of the Manual concerning "Amendments" 
in order that the Division of Elders may proceed immediately with the 
implementation of the divisional structure adopted at this meeting of 
Presbytery. 

3. That the Nominating Committee be authorized to nominate persons to 
membership on the Division's Committees. 

4. That the Temporary Steering Committee for the Division of Elders, having 
completed its assigned task, be dissolved. 

COMMITTEE ON EXAMINATIONS 

The Reverend John Leith, chairman. Committee on Examinations presented 
the Reverends Joseph Greer and Lewis Boyle for examination and reception 
into Orange Presbytery. Dr. Leith reviewed the previous examination by 
committee on the previous evening. The men were then examined on their 
Christian Experience by the moderator; Views on Theology by Dr. Leith, 
Views of Sacraments by the Reverend Middleton Raynal and Church Govern- 
ment by Dr. Kirk Allen. The examination in each of its parts and as a whole 
was found to be satisfactory.

Church, the Reverend Lewis Boyle from the New Hope Church and the

REPORT OF THE GULF-FIELD ADMINLSTRATIVE COMMISSION 

The report of the Administrative Commission of the Gulf-Field Churches 
was presented by the chaii-man, the Reverend Middleton Raynal, and was 
adopted: 

Your Commission, named at the October, 1971, meeting of Orange 
Presbytery, reported at the last stated meeting that we were concluding the 
task assigned to us and will submit our minutes to this meeting, (B.O.C.O. 
#118-2). 

On November 15, 1972, the Commission filed a full record of the matter, 
including our decisions, to the Stated Clerk. By action of the Commission, the 
Farmville Presbyterian Church, the Goldston Presbyterian Church, the Gulf 
Presbyterian Church and the Haywood Presbyterian Church were dissolved 
on November 15, 1972. 

The members of the congregation of the Goldston Church sold its 
property and sent the proceeds of $1,236 to Barium Springs. The former 
congregations of the P'armville Presbyterian Church, Haywood and Gulf 
Churches have each organized independent community churches and continue 
to have worship once a month. 

The Sessional Records of each of these churches have been microfilmed 
by the North Carolina Department of Archives and History and are being 
taken to the Presbyterian Foundation, Montreat, for copying. 

Each of the churches have completed and submitted to the Stated Clerk 
the Sessions' annual reports covering the period January 1 through November 
15, 1972. 

Recommendations ; 

1. That the minutes of this Commission submitted herewith be admitted to 
record. 

2. That Orange Presbytery approve the following resolutions: 

(1) "That the trustees of Orange Presbytery be and are authorized and 
directed to convey and quitclaim any property of or relating to each 
of the foregoing dissolved churches to such religious or charitable 
organization or organizations as, in each case, a representative of the 
congregation of the dissolved church shall designate; and 

(2) That the congregation of each dissolved church be requested promptly 
to notify the Stated Clerk of Orange Presbytery of the identity of 
the organization or organizations to which the congregations desire 
property to be conveyed, supplying a suitable and adequate legal 
description of such property and authenticated copies of any organ- 
izational documents, relating to the establishment of such organization,

Mr. Dennis Pake, a Ruling Elder of Hayvv^ood Church, led the question 
period by asking if the members could continue their own church, engage a 
minister and remain Presbyterian though independent of Presbytery. He also 
asked why the members had not been informed of Presbytery's concern at 
an earlier time. 

By vote of the Commission, Mr. Kenoy, a non-member whose wife is a 
member, was granted the privilege of the floor. He asked why this action 
was being contemplated at a time when the local residents were expecting 
growth of the community. 

In summation of the discussion that followed, Mr. Wilkins reviewed the 
Commission's options. He then suggested that the following be put to the 
church members for their vote in order that the Commissioners might know 
the wishes of the congregation.

2. Do you want Sunday School each week? Yes 10, No 

3. Do you desire a regular V/orship Service? Yes 10, No 

4. Would you prefer to be a chapel under another church session, or would

missioners and read the charge to the Commission.

membership.

v/ill return the school building to Chatham County,

2. Deed all property to the Trustees. 

3. Dismiss members of Gulf, Goldston, Farmville and Haywood Churches to 
Cumnock.

active congregations and observed that in his opinion, the people of the 
churches had shown no desire to be Presbyterian in more than name and have 
no real understanding of what it means to be Presbyterian. 

The Commission discussed the possible benefits to the Churches in con- 
tinuing to be a part of the Presbyterian Church and the possible benefits to 
the Presbytery of continuing to maintain the churches,

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



1. Representatives of Cumnock Presbyterian Church met with the Commission 
at Gulf, N. C. on December 12, 1971, at their request. 

2. These representatives informed us that the church wishes not to be Pres- 
byterian and to be dissolved. 

3. We received later, and now pass on a communication from the Cumnock 
Clerk of Session. 

While the Commission recognizes that it has no authority or jurisdiction 
over Cumnock Church, we respectfully suggest that Fayetteville Presbytery 
interpret the communications from Cumnock Church as a request for dissolu- 
tion, and in the event the church is dissolved, that any successor, independent 
church, charitable or memorial institution be encouraged to request donation 
of the real and personal property. 

A motion was approved that the Session Book of the Cumnock Church be 
sent to the Stated Clerk of Fayetteville Presbytery. 

After further discussion, a motion was approved to recommend to Presby-

ent status of tl.e Churcnes, as presented by the chairman. 

In the case of Goldston, it was reported that there are only 14 members, 
and while they have been unable to meet as a congregation, they are fully in 
accord with the Church being dissolved and the property being sold. It is their 
intention to use the proceeds for benevolent purposes. 

The Haywood congregation held a meeting on August 4, 1972, at which 
time they requested dissolution by Presbytery and requested that Presbytery 
deed the property to what will be an ongoing independent church. 

The Gulf congregation met on August 16, 1972, and voted to request dis- 
solution and become an independent church. The congregation is awaiting the 
further advice of the Commission. 

The Farmville congregation met and was unable to decide between be- 
coming a Presbyterian chapel or seeking independent status. There is no 
obvious choice for affiliation as a chapel. 

A motion was adopted approving the "sense and intent" of the unofficial 
meeting of this Commission on August 8, 1972. A motion was approved to 
dissolve the Gulf Presbyterian Church, effective November 15, 1972.

"The Presbytery of Orange takes particular delight in this day spent as 
the guest of the First Presbyterian Church of High Point, N. C. We have 
been much aware of and significantly assisted by the thoroughness with 
which our needs have been anticipated and met. The lunch was both tasty 
and ample, as well as most efficiently served. 

We would keep our protocol skirts clean by extending heartfelt thanks to 
the pastors and officers of the First Church, which indeed we do, albeit 
at the same time knowing that the Shock troops more probably put it all 
together. In either case we are indeed grateful."

REPORT OF THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

Wallace M. Alston, Jr., chairman, presented the report of the Council 
of Orange Presbytery and the following recommendation was adopted 
unanimously 

Recommendation : 

That Presbytery locate its office in the Westminster House on the campus 
of Duke University; and that Presbytery authorize the Council to negotiate 
a five year lease with the Synod of North Carolina for Westminster House 
at Duke University for use as a Presbytery office, subject to the limitation 
that the expected five year cost for rent, maintenance, repairs, renovation, 
etc., shall not exceed the expected five year cost of the present office in 
Burlington, North Carolina; and that Presbytery authorize the Council to 
conclude the new lease and move the office not later than February 1, 1974, 
when the present lease expires. 

SERVICE OF WORSHIP 

A meaningful worship service was led by Darrell Monroe, David Boozer, 
David Garrison, and Gary Waller with Dr. C. R. Swearingen and Miss Beth 
Daniel participating in the same. 

MAJOR EMPHASIS OF THE DAY 

Z. N. Holler presented the Objectives for Renewal Within the Corporate 
Body of Presbytery (Goals) and Objectives for Mission Beyond the Corporate 
Body of Presbytery. These goals were derived from the visits with each Session 
within our Presbytery and the concerns expressed to the members of Council 
during these visits. Presbytery divided into small groups and members of 
Council and staff served as leaders to assist in clarifying the goals in each 
group. Questions were then answered by a panel during the afternoon session. 
The goals will now be taken back to the local Sessions for discussion and 
suggestions may be made to the Presbtyery Office before May 21 for con- 
sideration by Council. Goals will be voted upon at the June 19 meeting of 
Presbytery.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CANDIDATES 

The report of the Committee on Candidates was presented by Harold 
Waldruff, chairman and was received as information with the recommendations 
adopted: 

1. That the Candidate, Glenn Alden Bass be transferred to Appomattox 
Presbytery. 

2. That applicant Raymond Ward Mendenhall be examined by Presbytery 
with a view to his becoming a candidate for the Gospel Ministry and 
that, pending satisfactory completion of his examination he be enrolled 
as a candidate for the Ministry under the care of Orange Presbytery. 
The Committee on Candidates has approved the application for candidacy 
of Mr. Raymond Ward Mendenhall, his college work having been com- 
pleted and he is prepared to enter Union Seminary, Richmond, Va. in 
the fall of 1973. He is a member of the Alamance Presbyterian Church, 
Greensboro, N. C. All credentials have been found in order. 

The moderator conducted the examination on his experience of Christian 
Grace and motives for seeking the Ministry of the Word, which was sustained, 
and propounded the constitutional questions, which were answered in the 
affirmative, after which Mr. W. A. Lambeth voiced prayer. Lowry McBath 
delivered a brief charge to Mr. Mendenhall and then recommended that he 
be enrolled as a Candidate for the Gospel Ministry under the care of Orange 
Presbytery. The moderator declared him acknowledged and received as a 
Candidate for the Ministry of the Word, and directed his name be recorded 
on the Presbytery's Roll of Candidates for the Ministry. The moderator 
extended to the Candidate the right hand of Christian fellowship, and the 
proceedings were closed with a benediction by the moderator. 

COMMISSION ON THE MINISTER AND HIS WORK 

Lee Adkins, chairman, presented the report of the Commission on the 
Minister and His Work which was adopted: 

The Commission has held three meetings since the last meeting of Pres- 
bytery. One was held at a church to meet with the pastor and the Session to 
inquire into problems in the church. The Commission has responded to re- 
quests for assistance from four churches by sending a visiting committee oi 
the Commission or a visit by the Commission. The General Pastor and the 
chairman have consulted with ministers to offer counsel and support. 

At its meeting on March 15, 1973, at the First Presbyterian Church, 
Burlington, a request was received from Robert B. Rock, retired, that he be 
transferred to Fayetteville Presbytery. Being retired and living in Lee County, 
formerly part of Orange Presbytery, his enrollment was not automatically 
transferred to Fayetteville Presbytery pursuant to the realignment of Presby- 
teries of the Synod of N. C. 

The Commission voted to grant the request of Robert B. Rock to be trans- 
ferred to Fayetteville Presbytery and directed the Stated Clerk to forward a 
Certificate of Dismission.

A communication was received from John C. Whitley, pastor of the First 
Presbyterian Church, Eden, N. C, requesting that the pastoral relationship 
between himself and the First Presbyterian Church, Eden, be dissolved and 
that he be honorably retired from the active ministry, that his name be pre- 
sented to the Kate Sittings Reynolds Fund as a beneficiary, and that the 
effective date of his request be June 30, 1973. 

He indicates that the congregation of the church in a duly called meeting 
has reluctantly concurred with him in his request to Orange Presbytery. 

RECOMMENDATION: (adopted) 

Pending hearing from representatives of the congregation of the First Presby- 
terian Church, Eden and from John C. Whitley, we recommend that his request 
to be honorably retired be granted effective June 30, 1973 and that the pulpit 
of the First Presbyterian Church, Eden be declared vacant on that date and 
that his name be presented to the Kate Bittings Reynolds Fund as a benefi- 
ciary, that he be presented a Certificate of Retirement and that Presbytery be 
led in a prayer of thanksgiving by the Reverend James S. R. Tippens. 



The Certificate of Honorable Retirement was presented to John C. Whitley, 
pastor of the Eden Presbyterian Church by Z. N. Holler and prayer was voiced 
by James S. R. Tippens. 

The Commisison has received a request from Steven R. Shoemaker that 
the pastoral relationship between himself and the Pittsboro Church be dis- 
solved effective at a date to be determined later in order that he might accept 
the Call as Campus Minister at NCSU-Raleigh. 

We recommend that pending hearing from a representative of the congre- 
gation confirming the action of the congregation that his request be granted 
that the pastoral relationship between himself and the Pittsboro Church be 
dissolved effective May 31, 1973 and that the pulpit be declared open. 



The report of the Division of Court Operation was presented by Herbert 
Underwood, chairman. The report was received as information and the recom- 
mendations were adopted:

gifts be distributed and equalized according to the percentages adopted by 
Presbytery.

RESOLUTIONS 

The report of the Committee on Resolutions was presented by Allen Mc- 
Sween, chairman and was adopted: 

"The Presbytery of Orange in Stated Meeting on April 24, 1973 expresses 
sincere gratitude to Almighty God for a beautiful day and for His benevolent 
Providence and gracious presence. 

We express grateful appreciation to the First Presbyterian Church of 
Smithfield for the many provisions made for the comfort and convenience of 
the Presbyteiy. Especially we are grateful for the wann and friendly recep- 
tion which greeted us — like coffee and doughnuts before the registration desk, 
and the lovely azaleas in the Recreation Room and the Sanctuary. Every need 
of the members of the court was anticipated and all accommodations were 
readily available. The lunch was delicious and the Women of the Church 
graciously served us with a smile. 

To the host pastor, Gary Waller, we offer a special word of commenda- 
tion. His genuinely cordial welcome gave the meeting of the Presbytery a 
flavor of earnestness from the start. 

For the moderator, Malcolm Williams, we have a particular word of 
thanks. With competence and quiet confidence he directed us through a heavy- 
docket with dispatch. 

We are grateful to the Executives of the Presbytery for the preparation 
and planning which resulted in a smooth operation in the meeting. 

The group leaders and the panel members enhanced our understanding of 
the mission and direction of the Presbytery. To them we are indebted. 

Finally, but far from least, we express our gratitude for the spirit of unity 
and good-will which was obvious in all of the functioning of the Presbytery. 



60 Minutes of Orange Presbytery 

We recommend that the Presbytery voice its gratitude to all of those 
named by a rising vote of appreciation.

MANUAL OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

I. THE NATURE AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH 

God, who chose us to be His people, calls us to serve Him through worship 
and work. Therefore the Church must examine its common life, and Christians 
their private lives, to the end that all may live as servants of God obeying 
His commands. 

Christian worship depends upon and is a response to the presence of God, 
the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to what God has done for us and for 
our salvation, which we acknowledge by acts and adoration, confession, thanks- 
giving, petition and obedience. 

The Church worships as believers, sharing a common life of faith, hope, 
love and commitment, assemble in common public worship. Christians worship 
God privately as individuals and families. We worship always as members 
of the Body of Christ. 

The work of the Church is a response to God's grace and is done in 
obedience to the will of God as this will is made known in Scripture. It is 
expressed in proclamation of and witness to the Word of God, and deeds of 
love and mercy. Through this service Christians seek the fulfillment of the 
divine purposes in society and history. 

(Preface, The Directory for the Worship and Work of the Church.) 

The Presbytery of Orange, as the dynamic connection of the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S. with the congregations and ministers of Alamance, Caswell, 
Chatham, Durham, Franklin, (iranville, Guilford, Halifax, Johnston, Nash, 
Northampton, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, Vance, Wake and 
Warren Counties, seeks to carry out the above statement in all its forms, 
structures, and programs. 

The Presbytery has as its primary task to reflect the redemptive mission 
of Jesus Christ in all its functions as an Agency of Review, Sharing, Guidance, 
Training, Innovation, Linking and Pastoral oversight. 

Presbytery is a reviewing agency, evaluating its words and deeds that 
they are obedient to the will of God. 

Presbytery is a sharing agency, sharing with congregations and ministers 
its experience and insight in regard to the best use of resources and energies 
in witnessing to the Lordship of Christ in its locale. 

Presbytery is a guiding agency, challenging congregations and ministers 
to use their full capacities in meeting their mission in being the servant 
community. 

Presbytery is an innovative agency, initating and carrying out imaginative 
forms of ministry which could not normally be accomplished through the 
limited resources of the parish. 

Presbytery is a linking agency, binding Christians to Christ, higher courts 
to lower, local churches to each other, other Christian bodies in cooperation, 
in ONE mission of the Church. 

Presbytery is a pastoral agency, providing whatever support, insight or 
counseling may be needed by its sessions and ministers. 

Presbytery is a training agency, providing whatever education, resources 
or personnel necessary to accomplish its mission and the mission of its member 
Churches. 

Because mission must determine form, Presbytery must remain flexible in 
its attitude toward structure, responding to current opportunities for fulfilling 
its mission. While maintaining the integrity of the interconnected body, the 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery

Church does not exist for selfish reasons but for the sei"vice of God and to 
make visible the love of God at work in the world. Therefore, it must be 
capable of acting quickly and decisively in the Name of Christ. It must be 
ready to follow its Lord into the uncertain future, willing to risk all, even 
its organizational life, in obedience to Him. 

II. THE STRUCTURE OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

Orange Presbytery carries out its mission through three divisions: The 
Division of Education and Mission, The Division of Elders, and The Division 
of Court Operations. It exercises oversight of these three divisons through 
a Council. In addition, a Commission on the Church and its Ministry and a 
Commission on Presbytery's Minutes are empowered to act on behalf of 
Presbytery in certain limited areas. 

THE DIVISION OF. ELDERS 

The Division of Elders acts primarily as a reviewing, training, and pastoral 
agency. It is served by a General Pastor, who is ordinarily a Teaching Elder. 
'J'he concerns of the Division include (1) the work of Pastors and Sessions, (2) 
the preparation and location of Teaching Elders and, (3) the work of Non- 
Parish Teaching Elders. Representatives of each concern, together with the 
(General Pastor, form a Steering Committee for coordinating the work of the 
Division. The Chairman of the Commission on the Minister and His Work shall 
serve as a member of this Steering Committee. The Committee functions of 
the Commission on the Minister and His Work (BCO 21-2) will ordinarily be 
carried out by the Division of Elders. 

The concern for the work of Pastors and Sessions is expressed through 
efforts to enhance their effectivenes, such as review of sessional records, 
periodic review and evaluation of their ministries and continuing support ac- 
tivities designed to increase their competence as Christian leaders within the 
Presbyt-^rian system. 

The concern for the preparation and location of Teaching Elders is ex- 
pressed through exercising care for Candidates for the Ministry, through over- 
seeing all calls to ministry, through examining ministers who are seeking 
membership in Presbytery, through helping churches that are seeking minis- 
ters and through facilitating pastoral changes. 

The concern for the work of Non-Parish Teaching Elders is expressed 
through counsel and recommendation as to the validity of their work, through 
regular evaluation as to the effectiveness of their ministry, through utilization 
of their experience and insights, through encouraging their growth in minis- 
terial competence, and through providing opportunities for fellowship, support 
and participation in the work of the Presbytery. 

The Division is invested by Presbytery with full authority to initiate pro- 
grams and activities appropriate to these concerns. 

THE DIVISION OF EDUCATION AND MISSION 

The Division of Education and Mission acts primarily as a sharing, guiding, 
training, and innovative agency. It is headed by a General Presbyter, who may 
be either a Teaching or Ruling Elder, and is composed of (1) Committee on 
Education and (2) Committee on Mission. The chairman of each committee 
together with the general Presbyter constitutes a steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on Education shares its experience with and gives guidance 
to congregations in meeting their mission. It is concerned with commitment, 
education, home and family nurture, worship, service, witness and evangelism, 
and the physical health of the congregations and their members. The entire 
thmst of its work is to help congregations improve their mission by improving 
continuing programs as well as developing new programs or methods. It 
operates Presbytery's camps and conference grounds.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



The Committee on Mission is an innovative agency, carrying out direct 
mission in such areas as urban ministry, town and country ministry, media 
ministry, new church development, campus Christian life, inter-church rela- 
tions, and any other forms of experimental ministry. It gives guidance to 
urban councils, shares its experience with aid-receiving churches in improving 
ministry in town and country, establishes new churches, develops new techni- 
ques of ministry through use of mass media of newspapers, radio and tele- 
vision, links its work to the college campus, actively cooperates with other 
Christian bodies in ministry, and continuously tries new forms of ministry, 
including research, oversight and evaluation. 

THE DIVISION OF COURT OPERATIONS 

The Division of Court Operations is primarily a sharing and linking 
agency. It is headed by a Stated Clerk and Treasurer who, with staff assis- 
tance, personally performs many of the functions of the Division. Preferably, 
the Stated Clerk and Treasurer would be a Ruling Elder, familiar with busi- 
ness. The Division is composed of (1) Docket and Liaison Committee, (2) 
Finance Committee, and (3) Worship Committee. The chairman of the Docket 
and Liaison Committee and the chairman of the Finance Committee together 
with the Stated Clerk and Treasurer constitutes a Steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Docket and Liaison committee prepares the docket for each stated 
meeting of Presbytery. The docket will be submitted to the Council for their 
advice and consent at least two weeks before each stated meeting of Pres- 
bytery. The Stated Clerk and Treasurer will make available for study to 
representatives and members of Presbytery pertinent divisional reports, re- 
commendations, and the docket at least one week prior to each stated meeting 
of Presbytery. After each meeting of Presbytery, stated, called or adjourned, 
this same group of people constitute Presbytery's Commission to approve the 
minutes of the previous meeting. After approval, the Stated Clerk will be 
authorized to print and distribute them. This committee communicates deci- 
sions of higher courts and information from various Presbyterian agencies to 
the appropriate parts of Presbytery. It also communicates information from 
any part of Presbytery to higher courts of their agencies. 

The Finance Committee hears from the various divisions and agencies of 
Presbytery their requests for funds and prepares an appropriate budget. The 
budget will be submitted first to Council for their approval and then to 
Presbytery for their approval. This committee reviews and approves the total 
budget of aid-receiving churches before Presbytery benevolent funds can be 
released. This committee arranges for necessary audits and reports the 
results to Presbytery through the Council. This committee supervises deferred 
gifts, has responsibility for the maintenance of the physical property of 
Presbytery, will be in charge of any Presbytery-wide fund raising campaigns 
and will constitute Presbytery's link to the Glade Valley School. 

The Worship Committee will have charge of all worship services at any 
meeting of Presbytery. 

THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The Council of Presbytery consists of sixteen voting members and five ex- 
officio non-voting members. The Chairman of the Council, who is a voting

PRESBYTERY COMMISSIONS 

The Commission on the Minister and His Work exercises pastoral concern 
by visiting churches to inquire into and settle difficulties, especially those aris- 
ing out of relationships between Teaching Elders and churches (BCO 21-8). 
The Commission is also empowered to dissolve pa.storal relationships when

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON PROFESSIONAL SERVICES 

The report of the Committee on Professional Services was presented by 
the chairman, Frank T. Lemmon, Jr. and the recommendations were adopted: 

RECOMMENDATIONS ; 

1. That sessions study the report of the General Assembly's Ad Interim Com- 
mittee on the Church's Use of its Ordained Ministry and send a copy of its 
response to the Professional Services Committee. 

2. That Presbytery instruct the Professional Sei-vices Committee to study the 
report of the General Assembly's Ad Interim Committee of the Church's 
Use of its Ordained Ministry and bring to the Presbytery the results of its 
study for consideration by the Presbytery the results of its study for con- 
sideration by the Presbytery as an Order of the Day at the January meet- 
ing of Presbytery. 

COMMITTEE ON COMPENSATION 

The report of the Committee on Compensation was presented by the 
chairman, Richard A. Short and was adopted as a whole: 

This committee is responsible for recommending compensation standards 
for the church's professional leadership and insuring that the financial needs 
of retired servants of the church and their families are adequately met. At the 
present, the committee is reviewing the salary situation in the Presbytery. A 
questionnaire concerning salaries has recently been sent to every minister in 
Presbytery who is employed by a church court or a church agency. The 
information from this survey will form part of the basis for future recom- 
mendations of this committee to Presbytery. 

One difficult question the committee faces is: How shall Presbytery re- 
spond to self-supporting churches whose Calls do not comply with Presby- 
tery's minimum standards ? We suggest this as an appropriate question for 
discussion by the Compensation Standing Committee at the June 19 meeting. 

The Committee recommends that the following change in Terms of Call 
be approved by Presbytery: 

The Call of the Greenwood Church to M. Hampton Hunter, changed to 
increase his salary to $7,300, and car allowance to $1,700 per annum. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE SESSION AND ITS WORK 

The report of the Committee on the Session and Its Work was presented 
by Z. N. Holler and received as information. Mr. Holler explained the process 
of the examination of the sessional records of the churches of the Presbytery. 

REPORT OF THE COMMISSION ON THE MINISTER AND HIS WORK 

Lee Adkins, chairman of the Commission on the Minister and His Work, 
presented the report which was adopted with its recommendations. 

I. Acting in the capacity of a Commission, the Commission on the Minister 
and His Work has taken the following action: 

1. At its meeting on May 31, a request was received from the Reverend 
Dewey Herring that the pastoral relationship between himself and 
the Crestwood Church, High Point, be dissolved effective June 15, 
1973 in order that he may accept the call of the Ahoskie Church, 
Albemarle Presbytery. 

A letter was received from Lula Simmons, clerk of a congregational 
meeting reaffii-ming the duly called meeting of the congregation of 
the Crestwood Church was held May 27, 1973 in which the congrega- 



30 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



tion voted to concur with the pastor's request to Orange Presbytery 
to dissolve the pastoral relationship. 

The Commission voted to dissolve the pastoral relationship between 
Dewey Herring and the Crestwood Church, effective June 15, 1973, to 
declare the pulpit vacant and to direct the Stated Clerk to forward to 
Albemarle Presbytery a Certificate of Dismission. 

2. A request has been received from Herbert Underwood that the pas- 
toral relationship between himself and the Westminster Church, 
Greensboro be dissolved and that he be granted one year away from 
the active pastoral ministry to reconsider his call to the gospel minis- 
try. 

A duly called meeting of the congregation was held June 3, 1973 in 
which the congregation reluctantly concurred with Mr. Underwood in 
his request to Orange Presbytery. 

3. A request has been received from David Garth, pastor of the Speed- 
well Church, Reidsville that the pastoral relationship between himself 
and the church be dissolved effective August 27, 1973 in order that 
he may enter upon a program of graduate studies at Union Theo- 
logical Seminary, Richmond, Virginia. Also that the relationship as 
Church Extension worker with Orange Presbytery be dissolved. 

A duly called meeting of the congregation of the Speedwell Church 
was held May 27, 1973 during which the congregation voted to concur 
with Mr. Garth in his request to Orange Presbytery. 

II. Acting as a Committee, the Commission has considered the following: 
A request has been received from Jerrold Lee Brooks, a member of 
Orange Presbytery, pursuing a program of graduate studies at Tulane 
University, that he be transferred to the Presbytery of South Louisiana. 

RECOMMENDATION : 

That upon his request, Jerrold Lee Brooks be dismissed to the Presbytery 
of South Louisiana, in order that he may pursue graduate studies and that 
the Stated Clerk forward a Certificate of Dismission. 

in. Also the Commission is concerned about the difficulties that continue to 
be evident in the life of the Crestwood Church. These difficulties have 
impaired the relationship with recent pastors and have thus detracted 
from the fmitfulness of the church's ministry. 

The pastoral relationship which is now terminating has been unhappy. 
The Commission feels that an opportunity to inquire into the situation 
in the church before calling a new^ pastor could contribute to establishing 
a more productive pastoral relationship and ministry for the Crestwood 
Church. 

RECOMMENDATIONS : 

1. The Commission recommends that the Presbytery of Orange appoint an 
Administrative Commission to inquire into and settle the difficulties in the 
Crestwood Church and that the church be instructed to delay calling a 
pastor pending the recommendation of the Administrative Commission. 

2. That the pastoral relationship between Herbert Underwood and the West- 
riiinster Church, Greensboro be dissolved, effective July 1, 1973; that the 
pulpit of Westminster Church be declared vacant; that Mr. Underwood be 
granted the permission of Presbytery to labor outside the active pastorate 
for a period of one year to reconsider his call to the pastoral ministry; that 
he consult vdth the Committee on Non-Parish Teaching Elders after six 
months; and that Mr, Underwood be heard now by Presbytery. 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery

3. That the pastoral relationship between David Garth and the Speedwell 
Church and the relationship between Mr. Garth and Orange Presbytery as 
Church Extension Worker be dissolved effective August 27, 1973; that the 
pulpit of the Speedwell Church be declared open; and that Mr. Garth be 
granted permission to pursue a program of graduate studies.

^,he chairman, William A. Stewart, Jr. and was received as infoi-mation.

The following was presented by Dr. John Leith and was adopted: 

POLICY FOR DISMISSAL 

Policies and Procedures of Orange Presbytery for Dealing with Churches 
Contemplating Withdrawal (Dismissal) from the Presbyterian Church, 
U. S. 

This statement of policy was wa^itten for adoption by Orange Presbytery 
at its Stated Meeting June 19, 1973 at Hawfields Presbyterian Church, Mebane, 
N. C. It is offered as a judgment of this meeting of Presbytery. It was neces- 
sitated by the emergence of an identifiable movement within the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S. which is making extensive efforts to induce churches to "with- 
draw" (be dismissed) from the denomination. For the churches' information 
Presbytery identifies the following groups (there may be others) as being 
committed to "withdrawal" (dismissal). 

The Conservative Coalition 
Concerned Presbyterians 

Executive Committee on Overseas Evangelism 
Presbyterian Churchmen United 
Presbyterian Evangelistic Fellowship 
Vanguard Presbytery 
Warrior Presbytery 

Steering Committee for a Continuing Presbyterian Church Faithful to the 

Scripures and the Reformed Faith 
Convocation of Sessions 

Because this movement threatens the life and integrity of the Presby- 
terian Church, U. S. as a whole, and in order to discourage precipitous and 
ill-considered action on the part of any church of Orange Presbytery, and in 
order to encourage clear and open communication concerning any difficulties 
that may arise because of the influence of this movement on our m.ember 
churches, this Presbytery recommends that the following policies and pro- 
cedures be publicized and observed by churches, individuals and future presby- 
teries. 

1. General Policies of Presbytery 

(1) Presbyteiy urges all the officers and members of its churches to 
undertake renewed study of the Book of Church Order, the Reformed 
doctrine of the Church and the basic principles of Presbyterian policy.

BCO chs. 27-6, 111-3; of the manifold w^ays in which the Church has 
supported and hopes to continue to support their ministries; and of

the requirements of integrity that are implicit in the vows and obliga- 
tions which they have undertaken as Teaching Elders of the Presby- 
terian Church, U. S. 

(3) Presbytery will insure that the procedures followed in dealing with 
the issues of "withdrawal" or strictly speaking, dismissal, are con- 
stitutional and expressive of the integrity of the Church of the Lord 
Jesus Christ. 

(4) Presbytery will fulfill its obligation to uphold and protect the rights 
of those who are loyal to their commitments to the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S., even though they be in a minority in a given congre- 
gation. 

(5) Presbytery will insist that any church's request to be dismissed deal 
justly with: 

(a) The nature of the Church of Jesus Christ and the Theological com- 
mitments of the Presbyterian Church, U. S. and 

(d) The rights of all who have investment in the particular church, in- 
cluding those not now" members, whose rights are represented by 
Presbytery. 

TI. Specific Policies Concerning Churches Making Requests for Dismissal 

(1) Presbytery reminds its member churches of its responsibility and 
powder in the matter of dismissing churches (BCO ch. 2-2; ch. 16-7 
(6), (7), (8), (9). 

(2) Presbytery hereby declares that if any church, having acted in 
scrupulous adherence to the provisions of the Book of Church Order 
(esp. BCO chs. 5, 15, 19, 119) comes to Presbytery with a request 
for dismissal to a true branch of the Church of Jesus Christ (BCO 
ch. 2-2), such request will be considered on its merits and in the 
light of Presbytery's responsibilities as set forth in the Book of 
Church Order (esp. BCO chs. 16-7; 101-1) and Section I of this paper. 

(3) Presbytery hereby assigns to the special Administrative Commission 
appointed to implement the provisions of this paper the responsibility 
of (a) reviewing and deteiTnining the constitutionality of the pro- 
cedures and actions by which a church comes to the point of making 
such a request and (b) settling the matter or making recommneda- 
tions to Presbytery concerning the disposition of the request. (BCO 
19-3). 

(4) In the judgment of Presbytery any church contemplating so serious 
an action should abide by the following policies: 

(a) Proper notification of meetings of the Session or Congregation to 
consider matters pertaining to "withdrawal" (dismissal) should be 
sent by registered mail to all the persons or families involved in 
each meeting, to Presbytery, and to the Administrative Commission. 

(b) Two or more members of the Administrative Commission should be 
present by invitation in every meeting called to deal with issues per- 
taining to "withdrawal" (dismissal) from the Presbyterian Church, 
U. S. 

(c) It would be the responsibility of all parties to such meetings, in- 
cluding the members of the Administrative Commission, to see that 
the Book of Church Order is at all times scrupulously followed. 

(d) Any congregational meeting to consider "withdrawal" (dismissal) 
from Presbytery should be held no sooner than sixty (60) days after 
the Session votes to call the meeting. 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



35 



(e) During this sixty (60) day period representatives of Presbytery 
should be given what they consider to be ample opportunity and time 
to present and discuss the issues involved in "withdrawal" (dis- 
missal) with the Minister, with the Session and with the congrega- 
tion. 

(f) The voting at a congregational meeting called to deal with the issue 
of "withdrawal" (dismissal) should be by secret written ballot, with 
only members whose names appear on the active roll of the church 
being entitled to vote; the results should be certified by both the 
Session and the Administrative Commission. 

(g) The Administrative Commission would then be responsible for settling 
the matter or recommending to Presbytery such action as is appropri- 
ate tc deal with the church's request. (BCO 19-3). 

(h) That, if the Administrative Commission concludes that dismissal of a 
church is the appropriate action to be taken, that such conclusion be 
recommended to Presbytery for its action 

RECOMMENDATION : 

That Council of Presbytery recommends that Presbytery authorize its 
Moderator and Nominating Committee to appoint an Administrative Commis- 
sion of nine members, representative of Presbytery as a whole and embodying 
long term experience in the life of the Church, whose responsibility it shall 
be to implement the policies and procedures set forth in this paper. 

A further motion was passed: 

That in pastoral, theological, and historical concern, this paper be read 
in its entirety to every Session of Orange Presbytery. 

REPORT OF COMMISSIONERS TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY 

The reports of the Commissioners to the 118th General Assembly were 
presented. Mrs. Lucy Rankin spoke of the participation of women and other 
minority groups in the decision-making of the Court and Dr. Kirk Allen spoke 
to several issues presented during the meeting. Some observations of the 
group w^ere: 

1. There w^as a mood of conciliation and tolerance with deep concern for the 
convictions of those considering withdrawal (dismissal) from PCUS. 

2. There were some extreme liberals and some solid conservatives among the 
Commissioners, but the majority were moderates who read, studied, listened, 
and prayed and then voted their conscience. 

3. The feeling of need of the church for commitment to Christ vv-as best ex- 
pressed in the six priorities adopted for 1975: (1) Evangelism and Out- 
reach (2) Personal Spiritual Gro\\i:h (3) Ministry to Persons and Problems 
(4) Leadership Development (5) Christian Cooperation (6) Strengthening 
the Small Church. 

4. The compassion of the Commissioners and Delegates was demonstrated by 
the cash contribution of more than $5,000 which they gave to be used in 
helping alleviate world hunger.

terian Church and to the candidates for our Worship experiences, and to the

REPORT OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE COMMISSION 
FOR THE GOSHEN CHURCH 

At the request of Presbytery of Orange at its January, 1973 meeting, and 
in conformity with the desires of the Goshen congregation and by the appoint- 
ment of Moderator Malcolm Williams, the Goshen Administrative Commission 
at the call of the chairman, Charles Norwood, met initially April 4, 1973 in the 
Goshen Church building. 

The Commission at its first meeting was apprised of the desires of the 
(ioshen congregation, and Presbytery, and in accordance with the Book of 
Church Order agreed to fulfill these wishes. After an initial sui-vey of the 
property, it was determined that an accurate land survey and appraisal was 
needed before further consideration of the property value. The furniture and 
appointments in the sancturary were dispensed as follows: Communion Sei-vice 
was returned to the original donator. First Presbyterian Church of Henderson; 
pulpit and furniture given to the Grassy Creek Church; the piano donated to 
Developmental Day Care Center at Mebane Memorial Church, Roxboro; and 
the smaller items and pews to be distributed and/or sold to members of the 
congregation and other interested persons by Elder Harry Humphries of the 
Goshen congregation. 

The Commission met for the second time by the call of the Chairman at 
Mebane Memorial Presbyterian Church in Roxboro, after hearing that an offer 
to buy the property had been made. After hearing the report of the com- 
pleted survey which revealed that there was approximately one acre of land 
and one building in the total property and the report of the offer of $1,000 
plus sui-veyor's fee, the Commission rejected the offer and proposed sale by 
auction in October. 

On June 26, 1973 the Commission was called to meet again at Mebane 
Memorial Church, Roxboro. The offer of $2,000 for property, $200 for remaining 
pews and $75 surveyor fee (total $2,275) was accepted by the Commission. The 
Reverend Robert Cochran was asked to contact a lawyer in Oxford to allow 
the purchaser, Mr. Willie Lee Thomas, to have use of the property until the 
title could be conveyed to him upon final consent of Presbytery at its October 
meeting. 

Recommendations : 

1. That the Goshen Presbyterian Church of Oxford, N. C. be dissolved and 
and that the congregation be allowed to continue as a unit and worship as 
a group with another congregation until such time as the real and personal 
property of the Church be disposed of and that the sessional records be 
kept by a designated clerk until each member of the congregation has 
found his or her place with another congregation; after two years the 
records be deposited with the Historical Foundation of Montreat, N. C. 

2. That the Trustees of Orange Presbytery be authorized and insti-ucted to 
convey the title of the property (as prepared) of the Goshen Presbyterian 
Church to Mr. Willie Lee Thomas of Oxford, N. C. for the sum of $2,275. 

3. That Presbytery give affirmation to the request of the Goshen congregation 
for the proceeds of the sale of the Goshen properties to be transferred to 
the Geneva Church.

3. That members of the course being offered on Lively Liturgy be permitted

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON COMPENSATION 

The report of the Committee on Compensation was presented by the 
chairman, Richard Short and was received as information with the recom- 
mendations being adopted: 

RECOMMENDATIONS : 

We recommend that Orange Presbytery adopt the following standards 
for 1974 as the minimum basis for all new full-time ministerial contracts/calls 
and the recommended basis for revising ministerial contracts/calls already in 
effect. 

Starting Salary Including Housing Allowance 

The suggested minimum figure for this category in 1974 is $10,800. Of 
this a specific amount can be designated as housing allowance in lieu of a 
manse. This should be an amount equal to the cost of mortgage payments, 
taxes, utilities and other annual costs of maintaining the minister's residence. 

In the case of churches that own manses, a reasonable allowance for the 
manse furnished and maintained by the church may be deducted from the in- 
clusive figure of $10,800. This deduction should not include that part of 
mortgage payments which goes toward building the church's equity in the 
manse property. 

The committee understands this recommended base salary- as a minimum 
fair salary for those who are duly ordained by presbyteries as teaching elders. 
That is, it is a starting salary. 



50 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



Standard Fringe Benefits 

These include the full 12% MAF dues, Major Medical, Life and Disability 
Insurance benefits provided by the Board of Annuities and Relief, and a 
vacation of one month. 

Professional Expenses 

These are expenses which should be borne by the churches and are not 
properly a part of salary or benefits. They include: 

1. The costs of travel involved in the performance of ministerial duties (pref- 
erably the provision of a car; alternatively, presbytery's rate of 124 P^r mile 
for professional travel or a lump sum as nearly as possible equivalent to 
the actual cost of the particular minister's professional travel expenses). 

2. The time and costs involved in continuing education (here we call to the 
attention of the churches the standards set forth in the Report of the Ad 
Interim Committee on the Church's Use of Her Ordained Ministry; $300 for 
annual two week study leave for the maintenance of professional compe- 
tence and $120 for extended professional development leave. See Section 
IV-C (5) and V-(IO) of the Committee's Report); and 

3. Money for books and journals. 

Guidelines for Annual Review and Adjustment of Minister's Salaries 

Factors to be considered in adding- increments to the starting salary (Item 
I) at the time of issuing a call or of annual evaluation and adjustment of a 
minister's salary include: 

1. Previous experience in the ministry 

2. Demonstrated competence and improved skills 

3. A job description based on the goals of the church he serves 

4. The financial requirements related to serving a particular congregation 
(cost of housing in areas where the minister must live, cost of expected and 
desired entertaining, and the like) 

5. Number, age and particular needs of the minister's dependents. 

The committee points out that these standards reflect its awareness of the 
minimum salary standards suggested in the Ad Interim Committee's report 
(Section IV-C, V-10) and exceed those standards, w^hich are based on 1972 
figures. 

It is the understanding of the committee that the recommended starting 
salary figure in this report will be reviewed annually by the Committee on 
Compensation and that a revised figure will be recommended to Presbytery 
each year for adoption. This figure will reflect such factors as changes in the 
cost of living in this area, recommendations of the General Assembly, and the 
like. 

In addition, the committee recommends that: 

The Call of the Yanceyville Presbyterian Church to John M. Duncan be 
changed, in accordance with a previous agreement to make this a half-time 
relationship as of September, 1973, as follows: Salary — $3,650 and car allow- 
ance $850. 

REPORT OF THE COMMISSION ON THE MINISTER AND HIS WORK 

The report of the Commission on the Minister and His Work was pre- 
sented by Lee Adkins, chairman and was adopted as a whole: 

Since the last meeting of Presbytery the Commission has consulted with 
four ministers and made five visits to churches in the Presbytery. 

I. Acting in the capacity of a commission, the Commission On the Minister 
and His Work has taken the following actions:

A letter was received advising that a duly called meeting of the 
congregation was held on August 19, 1973 in which the congregation 
reluctantly concurred with Mr. Olney in his request to Orange Pres- 
bytery to dissolve the pastoral relationship with the church effective 
August 30, 1973. The letter was certified by the Clerk of the meeting, 
E. Wilson Cole. 

Action 

The Commission voted to dissolve the pastoral relationship between 
Willard W. Olney and the Hillsborough Church, effective August 30, 1973 
and to declare the pulpit vacant. 

B. Lariy Churchill requested by letter that the pastoral relationship 
between himself and the Little River Church be dissolved effective 
August 15, 1973 in order that he may pursue a program of research 
studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and teach- 
ing at Duke University. 

A letter was received from the Clerk, Wm. D. Miller, certifying 
that the congregation in a duly called meeting had voted to concur 
with Larry Churchill in his request to Orange Presbytery to dissolve 
the pastoral relationship. 

Action 

The Commission voted to dissolve the pastoral relationship be- 
tween Larry Churchill and the Little River Church effective August 

15, 1973 and to declare the pulpit vacant. 

C. W. Lowry McBath appeared before the Commission to request that the 
pastoral relationship between himself and the Alamance Church be 
dissolved September 30, 1973 and that he be granted permission to 

' labor away from the pastoral ministry with a view to developing a 
self-suppotring pastoral ministry outside the bounds of Orange 
Presbytery. 

Elder Mitchell Causey appeared before the Commission to advise 
that at a duly called meeting of the congregation held on September 

16, 1973, the congregation voted to concur with Mr. McBath in his 
request to Orange Presbytery.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



Action 

The Commission voted to dissolve the pastoral relationship between 
Marion Phillips and the Church of Reconciliation effective September 
30, 1978 and to declare the pulpit vacant. 

II. Acting as a Committee, the Commission has considered the following and 
makes these recommendations: 

A. That W. W. Olney be granted permission to labor outside the pastoral 
ministry to reconsider his call to the pastoral ministry for a period of 
one (1) year and that he consult with the Committee on Non-Parish 
Teaching Elders after six (6) months. 

B. That Larry Churchill be granted permission to labor outside the active 
pastoral ministry in a program of graduate studies and teaching, such 
endeavors being considered appropriate to the work of a teaching 
elder. 

C. That W. Lowry McBath be granted permission to labor outside the 
active pastoral ministry for a period of one (1) year with a view to 
developing a self-supporting pastoral ministry and that he consult 
with the Committee on Non-Parish Teaching Elders after six (6) 
months. 

D. That Marion Phillips be granted permission to labor as a member of 
the staff of the School of Medicine, UNC-Chapel Hill, N. C. 

III. It is of concern to the Commission that an increasing number of ministers 
are seeking to labor away from the active pastoral ministry. We note 
with considerable concern that four pastors, in a period of four months 
have vacated their pulpits requesting permission for time to reconsider 
their call to the pastoral ministry or to explore vocations outside the pas- 
torate or work appropriate to the ordained ministry. This suggests a 
growing need for discovering and implementing ways for providing more 
effective support to pastors and their families serving the church. 

A motion passed that the request of David Hamilton to be transferred 
to a presbytery involved in the Continuing Church Movement be referred 
to the Commission on the Minister and His Work and docketed for the 
January, 1974 meeting of Orange Presbytery.

MANUAL OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

I. THE NATURE AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH 

God, who chose us to be His people, calls us to serve Him through worship 
and work. Therefore the Church must examine its common life, and Christians 
their private lives, to the end that all may live as servants of God obeying 
His commands. 

Christian worship depends upon and is a response to the presence of God, 
the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to what God has done for us and for 
our salvation, which we acknow^ledge by acts and adoration, confession, thanks- 
giving, petition and obedience. 

The Church worships as believers, sharing a common life of faith, hope, 
love and commitment, assemble in common public worship. Christians worship 
God privately as individuals and families. We worship always as members 
of the Body of Christ. 

The work of the Church is a response to God's grace and is done in 
obedience to the will of God as this will is made known in Scripture. It is 
expressed in proclamation of and witness to the Word of God, and deeds of 
love and mercy. Through this service Christians seek the fulfillment of the 
divine purposes in society and history. 

(Preface, The Directorj^ for the Worship and Work of the Church.) 

The Presbytery of Orange, as the dynamic connection of the Presbyterian 
Church, U. S. vdth the congregations and ministers of Alamance, Caswell, 
Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax, Johnston, Nash, 
Northampton, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, Vance, Wake and 
Warren Counties, seeks to carry out the above statement in all its forms, 
structures, and programs. 

The Presbytery has as its primary task to reflect the redemptive mission 
of Jesus Christ in all its functions as an Agency of Review, Sharing, Guidance, 
Training, Innovation, Linking and Pastoral oversight. 

Presbytery is a reviewing agency, evaluating its words and deeds that 
they are obedient to the will of God. 

Presbytery is a sharing agency, sharing with congregations and ministers 
its experience and insight in regard to the best use of resources and energies 
in witnessing to the Lordship of Christ in its locale. 

Presbytery is a guiding agency, challenging congregations and ministers 
to use their full capacities in meeting their mission in being the servant 
community. 

Presbytery is an innovative agency, initating and carrying out imaginative 
forms of ministry which could not normally be accomplished through the 
limited resources of the parish. 

Presbytery is a linking agency, binding Christians to Christ, higher courts 
to lower, local churches to each other, other Christian bodies in cooperation, 
in ONE mission of the Church. 

Presbytery is a pastoral agency, providing whatever support, insight or 
counseling may be needed by its sessions and ministers. 

Presbytery is a training agency, providing whatever education, resources 
or personnel necessary to accomplish its mission and the mission of its member 
Churches. 

Because mission must determine form, Presbytery must remain flexible in 
its attitude toward structure, responding to current opportunities for fulfilling 
its mission. While maintaining the integrity of the interconnected body, the 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery

Church does not exist for selfish reasons but for the service of God and to 
make visible the love of God at work in the world. Therefore, it must be 
capable of acting quickly and decisively in the Name of Christ. It must be 
ready to follow its Lord into the uncertain future, willing to risk all, even 
its organizational life, in obedience to Him. 

IL THE STRUCTURE OF ORANGE PRESBYTERY 

Orange Presbytery carries out its mission through three divisions: The 
Division of Education and Mission, The Division of Elders, and The Division 
of Court Operations. It exercises oversight of these three divisons through 
a Council. In addition, a Commission on the Church and its Ministry and a 
Commission on Presbytery's Minutes are empowered to act on behalf of 
Presbytery in certain limited areas. 

THE DIVISION OF ELDERS 

The Division of Elders acts primarily as a reviewing, training, and pastoral 
agency. It is served by a General Pastor, who is ordinarily a Teaching Elder. 
The concerns of the Division include (1) the work of Pastors and Sessions, (2) 
the preparation and location of Teaching Elders and, (3) the work of Non- 
Parish Teaching Elders. Representatives of each concern, together with the 
General Pastor, form a Steering Committee for coordinating the work of the 
Division. The Chairman of the Commission on the Minister and His Work shall 
serve as a member of this Steering Committee. The Committee functions of 
the Commission on the Minister and His Work (BCO 21-2) will ordinarily be 
carried out by the Division of Elders. 

The concern for the work of Pastors and Sessions is expressed through 
efforts to enhance their effectivenes, such as review of sessional records, 
periodic review and evaluation of their ministries and continuing support ac- 
tivities designed to increase their competence as Christian leaders within the 
Presbyterian system. 

The concern for the preparation and location of Teaching Elders is ex- 
pressed through exercising care for Candidates for the Ministry, through over- 
seeing all calls to ministry, through examining ministers who are seeking 
membership in Presbytery, through helping churches that are seeking minis- 
ters and through facilitating pastoral changes. 

The concern for the work of Non-Parish Teaching Elders is expressed 
through counsel and recommendation as to the validity of their work, through 
regular evaluation as to the effectiveness of their ministry, through utilization 
of their experience and insights, through encouraging their growth in minis- 
terial competence, and through providing opportunities for fellowship, support 
and participation in the work of the Presbytery. 

The Division is invested by Presbytery with full authority to initiate pro- 
grams and activities appropriate to these concerns. 

THE DIVISION OF EDUCATION AND MISSION 

The Division of Education and Mission acts primarily as a sharing, guiding, 
training, and innovative agency. It is headed by a General Presbyter, who may 
be either a Teaching or Ruling Elder, and is composed of (1) Committee on 
Education and (2) Committee on Mission. The chairman of each committee 
together with the general Presbyter constitutes a steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Committee on Education shares its experience with and gives guidance 
to congregations in meeting their mission. It is concerned with commitment, 
education, home and family nurture, worship, service, witness and evangelism, 
and the physical health of the congregations and their members. The entire 
thrust of its work is to help congregations improve their mission by improving 
continuing programs as well as developing new programs or methods. It 
operates Presbytery's camps and conference grounds.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



The Committee on Mission is an innovative agency, carrying out direct 
mission in such areas as urban ministry, town and country ministry, media 
ministry, new church development, campus Christian life, inter-church rela- 
tions, and any other forms of experimental ministry. It gives guidance to 
urban councils, shares its experience with aid-receiving churches in improving 
ministry in town and country, establishes new churches, develops new techni- 
ques of ministry through use of mass media of newspapers, radio and tele- 
vision, links its work to the college campus, actively cooperates with other 
Christian bodies in ministry, and continuously tries new forms of ministiy, 
including research, oversight and evaluation. 

THE DIVISION OF COURT OPERATIONS 

The Division of Court Operations is primarily a sharing and linking 
agency. It is headed by a Stated Clerk and Treasurer who, with staff assis- 
tance, personally performs many of the functions of the Division. Preferably, 
the Stated Clerk and Treasurer would be a Ruling Elder, familiar with busi- 
ness. The Division is composed of (1) Docket and Liaison Committee, (2) 
Finance Committee, and (3) Worship Committee. The chairman of the Docket 
and Liaison Committee and the chairman of the Finance Committee together 
Vv4th the Stated Clerk and Treasurer constitutes a Steering committee to co- 
ordinate the work of the Division. 

The Docket and Liaison committee prepares the docket for each stated 
meeting of Presbytery. The docket will be submitted to the Council for their 
advice and consent at least two weeks before each stated meeting of Pres- 
bytery. The Stated Clerk and Treasurer will make available for study to 
representatives and members of Presbyter^?- pertinent divisional reports, re- 
commendations, and the docket at least one week prior to each stated meeting 
of Presbytery. After each meeting of Presbytery, stated, called or adjourned, 
this same group of people constitute Presbytery's Commission to approve the 
minutes of the previous meeting. After approval, the Stated Clerk will be 
authorized to print and distribute them. TMs committee communicates deci- 
sions of higher courts and information from various Presbyterian agencies to 
the appropriate parts of Presbytery. It also communicates information from 
any part of Presbytery to higher courts of their agencies. 

The Finance Committee hears from the various divisions and agencies of 
Presbytery their requests for funds and prepares an appropriate budget. The 
budget will be submitted first to Council for their approval and then to 
Presbytery for their approval. This committee reviews and approves the total 
budget of aid-receiving churches before Presbytery benevolent funds can be 
released. This committee arranges for necessary audits and reports the 
results to Presbytery through the Council. This committee supervises deferred 
gifts, has responsibility for the maintenance of the physical property of 
Presbytery, will be in charge of any Presbytery-wide fund raising campaigns 
and will constitute Presbytery's link to the Glade Valley School, 

The Worship Committee will have charge of all worship services at any 
meeting of Presbytery. 

THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The Council of Presbytery consists of sixteen voting members and five ex- 
officio non-voting members. The Chairman of the Council, who is a voting 
member, shall be elected annually by Presbytery. No individual shall serve 
more than three successive terms as Chairman. There shall be three classes 
of three each: Presbytery shall elect a class annually for three year terms. 
Of these nine at-large members, at least five must be laymen. The Committee 
on Education and the Committee on Mission of the Division of Education and 
Mission shall each elect a voting representative to Council. At least one must 
be a layman. The Committee on the Session and its Work and the Committee

elect a voting representative to Council. At least one must be a layman. All of 
these representatives serve both on the respective committees and the council. 
They shall be elected annually and no individual shall serve more than three 
successive terms. The General Presbyter, The General Pastor, the Stated Clerk

Ministry, and the Moderator of Presbytery shall all be advisory non-voting 
members of the Council. 

The major responsibility of the Council will be to coordinate the work of 
the three Divisions. The Council will have a Personnel Committee to make re- 
commendations to it and Presbytery concerning the positions of General 
Presbyter, General Pastor, and Stated Clerk and Treasurer. 

PRESBYTERY COMMISSIONS 

The Commission on the Minister and His Work exercises pastoral concern 
by visiting churches to inquire into and settle difficulties, especially those aris- 
ing out of relationships between Teaching Elders and churches (BCO 21-3). 
The Commission is also empowered to dissolve pastoral relationships when 
})oth pastor and church are in accord. To facilitate the work of the Commission 
the Committee responsibilities of the Commission as specified in the Book of 
Church Order (Par. 21-2) will ordinarily be carried out by the Division of 
Elders. To assure their implementation, the Chairman of the Commission shall 
be a member of the Steering Committee of the Division of Elders.

given their duties by Presbytery when they are appointed.

with the authority of presbytery. These committees shall not be concenied 
with matters which are exclusively part of the responsibility of an existing 
Division.

made by the congregation of the church. This was refen-ed to the Com- 
mittee on Bills and Overtures: 

FROM: The Gruver Memorial Presbyterian Church 

The Congregation of the Gmver Memorial Church met Sunday, January 
13, 1974, and reluctantly voted to disband as a congregation and to close 
the church. The meeting was called and conducted in accordance with 
the rules of the Book of Church Order governing Congregational Meetings.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



The Congregation requests the Presbytery of Orange to take steps neces- 
sary for dissolution and for the proper disposition of church property, and 
to assist the Congregation in the transfer of church members to other 
churches. Reason for this action is declining membership reducing the 
number of active members on the church roll to such a small number as 
to make it impractical to carry on and to support the life and work of 
a congregation. 

This request is given to the Presbytery by the pastor of the church in 
accordance with the wishes of the congregation. 

10. W. T. Perkins presented a report of the Stewardship Promotion Com- 
mittee and requested questionnaires to be completed and handed in during 
this meeting. 

11. NEW BUSINESS — An overture to the General Assembly concerning 
an Amendment to the Book of Church Order 111-3 was referred to the 
Committee on Bills and Overtures: 

WHEREAS, certain church officers and members of this Presbytery have 
acted in such a way as to be seen as schismatic given the definition 
previously established; 

AND WHEREAS, it is with deep regret and sorrow that the Presbytery 
humbly exercises the discipline of the church in these cases; 

AND WHEREAS, the Presbytery ought in its exercise of discipline 
be able to act discriminately and fittingly; 

THEREFORE, Orange Presbytery overtures the 114th General Assembly 
of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. to amend the Book of Church 
Order, 111-3, to read as follows: 

"When a church officer, whether Minister, Ruling Elder, or Deacon, 
renounces the communion or authority of this Church by a statement 
or by joining some other Church recognized by our own as a true 
branch of the Church of Christ, the coui-t having jurisdiction shall 
record the irregularity and withdraw from him all authority to 
exercise office derived from this Church. If charges are pending 
against him, the court shall communicate to the Church the officer 
has joined a full statement of the charges pending. When a Church 
officer renounces the communion of this Church by affiliating himself 
with some organized religious body which is heretical or schismatic, 
the court having jurisdiction shall make a full record of the irregu- 
larity, and declare that he is divested of his office in the Church and 
no longer possesses any rights or authority pertaining thereto, and 
shall censure the officer to the degree which the court deems 
appropriate.

byterian Church, Durham, on August 19, 1973 did adopt the following 
resolution : 

RESOLUTION 

'Whereas, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United 
States has engaged in actions fraught with fraud, collusion and arbitrari- 
ness detrimental to the rights of Northside (and Fuller Memorial) Pres- 
byterian Church, and 

'Whereas, continued association with Orange Presbytery and the Presby- 
terian Church in the United States is no longer possible and the congre- 
gation of Northside (and Fuller Memorial) Presbyterian Church wishes 
to free itself on its denominational affiliation, and 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery

'Whereas, such exercise of freedom is guaranteed by the First and 
Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of 
America; 

*Now Therefore be it resolved by the congregation of Northside (and 
Fuller Memorial) Presbyterian Church that it do withdraw from Orange 
Presbytery and the Presbyterian Church in the United States, and by so 
doing does sever all relationships with said bodies. 

*Be it further resolved by the congregation of Northside (and Fuller 
Memorial) Presbyterian Church that it declares itself to be an autonomous 
and independent church free of any association with the Orange Pres- 
bytery and the Presbyterian Church in the United States. 

'And be it further resolved that all matters concerning the Northside 
(and Fuller Memorial) Presbyterian Church both spiritual and secular, 
shall be determined by the local church congregation and shall be carried 
out through its duly elected officers. 

'And Whereas there is no provision in the Book of Church Order for 
unilateral withdrawal of a church from the Presbyterian Church in the 
United States, 

'And Whereas the Sessions of the churches involved refused to respond 
in any way to the request of the Administrative Commission on November 
6, 1973 which rejected the accusations contained in the Resolution of 
Withdrawal, requested the congregations to rescind their action to with- 
draw unilaterally from Orange Presbytery, withdraw their Resolution and 
Inform the Commission of such action by December 1, 1973 stating that 
not to do the above would result in overt action by the Administrative 
Commission. 

'And Whereas it has been published abroad that these churches have 
affiliated themselves with another body which identifies itself as the 
National Presbyterian Church, 

Therefore, your Administrative Commission makes the following recom- 
mendations to Orange Presbytery:" 

RECOMMENDATIONS: The following recommendations were adopted by 
Orange Presbytery: 

1. That Orange Presbytery categorically reject the accusations contained 
in the Resolution of Withdrawal. 

2. That Presbytery record the irregularity and withdraw from the Ruling 
Elders and Deacons all authority to exercise office derived from the 
Presbyterian Church, U.S. 

3. (This recommendation was reconsidered and a substitute adopted, see 

page 35 Administrative Commission. )

Reverend David E. Hamilton) and Orange Presbytery be referred to the 
Commission on the Minister and His Work for recommendation.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



We, the members of Orange Presbytery, wish to thank the pastors and 
Session of White Memorial Presbyterian Church for our meaningful worship 
service and their gracious hospitality. We wish to recognize the W.O.C. for 
their endeavors in providing for our every need with special emphasis on 
the well prepared and served meal. 

We also would like to express our appreciation to all who have con- 
tributed to the quality of this Ninth Stated Meeting of Orange Presbytery. 
Presbytery reconvened for business at 1:15 p.m. 

SERMON FOR ORDINATION 

A sermon was preached by Malcolm Gray Clark as a part of his examina- 
tion for ordination. The sermon topic was, "We, The Children Of God" and the 
text, 1 John 3: 1-3. This part of the examination was sustained as satisfactory 
as well as the sermon by William R. McSwegin. 

REPORT OF ADMINISTRATIVE COMMISSION RESUMED 

The report of the Administrative Commission was resumed and a motion 
passed that further consideration of the report of the Commission be post- 
poned until we have heard the Commission on the Minister and His Work 
with regard to the question of schism. 

ORDER OF THE DAY— COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

The Order of the Day was called and Presbytery proceeded to hear the 
report of the Council of Presbytery. A motion to take from the table the 
question of Glade Valley School was defeated. 

Wallace M. Alston, chairman of Presbytery's Council, presented the report 
of the Council and the report with its recommendations was amended and 
adopted : 

The Council of Orange Presbj'tei-y has met twice since the last Presbytery 
meeting. An Ad Hoc Committee composed of Kirk Allen, Charles Wilkins and 
Joyce Bauer was appointed by Council to study the situation of Glade Valley 
School. The committee presented the following recommendations to Council 
which were approved and the Council of Orange Presbytery thus recommends 
the following; 

RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING GLADE VALLEY: 

1. That Presbytery instruct the Council of Presbytery to proceed with a 
thorough study involving representatives of the Councils of Orange and 
Concord Presbyteries with the representatives of the Board of Trustees of 
Glade Valley School and report a series of facts and observations to the 
next meeting of Presbytery. 

2. That this study shall be made in light of Presbytery's understanding of 
its own goals and objectives and its stewardship of benevolence funds. 

3. That study should include a recognition of the potential that this geo- 
graphical site holds for a development of a ministry to persons in Pied- 
mont Carolina and therefore should look with anticipation to a greatly 
enlarged program involving the Presbyteries, Synod and General Assem- 
bly, i.e., linkage of the Barium Springs ministry to families and per- 
sons; linkage with Professional Development Division of GEB and Com- 
mission on the Minister. 

4. That we put in the budget of Orange Presbytery the sum of $10,000 
for 1974 for Glade Valley School. 

ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS: 

5. That, inasmuch as Mrs. Joyce Bauer was informed after she was em- 
ployed that Presbytery intended to move its office, thus causing her 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



35 



overwhelming automobile expenses, Presbytery give her the sum of 
$2,500 as an expression of appreciation for her willingness to serve under 
these conditions, and in lieu of moving expenses to Durham. 

6. That Presbytery continue to work under the present manual during 1974. 

COMMISSION ON THE MINISTER AND HIS WORK 

Presbytery heard again from the Commission on the Minister and His 
Work and the following resolution on schism in the Church w^as adopted: 

Whereas, "schism" is commonly defined* as "a: formal division in or 
separation from a church or religious body b: the offense of pro- 
moting schism"; 

And whereas, the movement identified in the whole variously as the 
"Continuing Presbyterian Church" or the "National Presbyterian 
Church" is in the process of formal separation and constitution apart 
from the Presbyterian Church in the United States; 

And whereas, certain PCUS congregations, ruling elders and teaching 
elders have acted to form or to join one of the several presbyteries 
(Vangard, Warrior, Gulf Coast, Mid-Atlantic, et al) which are identi- 
fied with this movement, thus, 

•Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary, 1971 

separating themselves from the Presbyterian Church in the "United 
States ; 

And whereas, this separatist movement has been promoted and encouraged 
by several organizations (Presbyterian Evangelistic Fellowship, Con- 
cerned Presbyterians, et al), and publications (The Presbyterian 
Journal, The Concerned Presbyterian, et al); 

And whereas, this movement represents a "strike at the vitals of religion" 
and is being "industriously spread;" (Cf., BOCO 107-5) 

Therefore, be it resolved that Orange Presbytery of the Synod of North 
Carolina, Presbyterian Church in the United States, declares this 
separatist movement (all presbyteries, congregations, ruling elders 
- and teaching elders who identify themselves with it and all organi- 
zations and publications which have promoted and encouraged it) 
to be schismatic. 

CONSIDERATION OF ADMINISTRATIVE COMMISSION TO DEAL WITH 
CHURCHES SEEKING TO WITHDRAW FROM THE DENOMINATION 

The report of the Administrative Commission resumed and a motion to 
reconsider recommendation number three (previously adopted) was passed. 
The following was adopted as a substitute: 

That Presbytery dissolve Northside (and Fuller Memorial) Churches effective 
January 15, 1974. 

Recommendation number five was amended and adopted as follows: 
That all property of the churches be delivered, conveyed and transferred to 
the authorized agents of Orange Presbytery in accord with the Book of 
Church Order, 6-3, on or before April 15, 1974. 

COMMITTEE ON BILLS AND OVERTURES 

A partial report of the Committee on Bills and Overtures was presented 
by Paul Boone, chairman, and the following recommendation was adopted: 

1. That the Overture relating to paragraph 111-3 of the Book of Church 
Order proposed by the Commission on the Minister and His Work, be 
approved and be forwarded to the General Assembly.

Minutes of Orangp: Presbytery 



"Whereas, certain church officers and members of this Presbytery have 
acted in such a way as to be seen as schismatic given the definition 
previously established ; 

And whereas, it is with deep regret and sorrow that the Presbytery 
humbly exercises the discipline of the church in these cases; 

And whereas, the Presbytery ought in its exercise of discipline to be able 
to act discriminately and fittingly; 

Therefore, Orange Presbytery overtures the 114th General Assembly of 
the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. to amend the Book of Church 
Order, 111-3, to read as follows: 

"When a Church Officer, whether Minister, Ruling Elder, or Deacon, 
renounces the communion or authority of this Church by a statement 
or by joining some other Church recognized by our own as a true 
branch of the Church of Christ, the court having jurisdiction shall 
record the irregularity and withdraw from him all authority to 
exercise office derived from this Church. If charges are pending 
against him, the court shall communicate to the Church the officer 
has joined a full statement of the charges pending. When a Church 
Officer renounces the communion of this Church by affiliating himself 
with some organized religious body which is heretical or schismatic, 
the court having jurisdiction shall make a full record of the irregu- 
larity, and declare that he is divested of his office in the Church and 
no longer possesses any rights of authority pertaining thereto, 
and shall censure the officer to the degree which the court deems 
appropriate.'' 

The Order of the Day for Adjournment was changed to 6:00 p.m. 
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON EXAMINATIONS 

James Miller, acting for the chairman, presented candidates Malcolm Gray 
Clark and William R. McSwegin and the Reverend Haywood Dail Holdemess, 
Richard Allen Brand and Donald Leroy Cooper for examination and reception 
into Orange Presbytery. The Committee examination on the previous evening 
was reviewed. The men were examined on their Christian Experience by the 
moderator. This part of the examination was sustained. Candidates Clark and 
McSwegin were asked the questions on the English Bible by W. F. Stinespring 
and this part of the examination was sustained. Each man was examined on 
his Views on Theology by James Rissmiller which was sustained and on their 
Views of the Sacraments and Church Government by Steven Shoemaker which 
was sustained. James Miller made a report on the candidates' Exegesis and 
Theological Thesis. The questions for ordination were asked by the moderator 
to Mr. Cooper, transferring from the UPUSA, Wyoming Presbytery. 

A motion to waive Mr. McSwegin's requirement for Hebrew, having been 
made at the October 23, 1973 Meeting of Orange Presbytery, was adopted by 
the required three-fourths majority. Presbytery's basis for waiving this 
requirement was Mr. McSwegin's transferring to the Presbyterian Church, 
U.S. from another denomination late in his seminary career. 

The examination was sustained as a whole.

byteries invite and join with the Synod of the Virginias and its member 
presbyteries to develop and to implement cooperative mission programs and 
strategies with the Synod of the Piedmont and its member judicatories of the 
United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America.

40 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



diction of a higher course, such as the work of missions outside the 
bounds of Presbyteries comprising the General Assembly, which is 
under the jurisdiction of the General Assembly, without commissioning 
by the proper agency of such higher court." 
Vote 66 for, against. 

(3) Amend 18-6 (8) by adding the following clause at the end of the 
sentence: . ., which measures shall include the work of missions 
outside the bounds of Presbyteries comprising the General Assembly." 
Vote 65 for, against. 

(4) Amend the Book of Church Order by changing the designation, "Com- 
mission on the Minister and His Work," wherever it appears to "Com- 
mission on the Minister." (See especially Chapters 21 and 22. — Stated 
Clerk) 

Vote 70 for, against. 

(5) Amend the Book of Church Order by deleting Section 22-2. (The full 
Minutes state the constitutional change thus requested is for the pur- 
pose implementing the decision to restructure boards and agencies 
voted by the 112th General Assembly, which assigned the functions of 
the Assembly's Committee on the Minister and His work to the General 
Executive Board. — Stated Clerk) 

Vote 71 for, against. 

II. That Presbytery adopt the following resolution: 

WHEREAS the Synod of North Carolina in its one hundred sixtieth 
annual session, held at Richmond, Virginia, June 5-6, 1973, asked each of 
"its Presbyteries to consider the comment on the advisability of Synod 
becoming a delegated body;" and whereas under the present structure 
more people are involved in the process of decision making and in gaining 
information regarding the programs and directions of Synod and its 
agencies; and whereas 

any further erosion of the channels of communication or symbols of unity 
should be avoided, especially at the present time; and whereas 
the meetings of Synod provide, particularly for the minister members, 
considerable emotional support; and whereas 

Orange Presbytery is experiencing difficulty in arranging a process of 
nominating Commissioners to the General Assembly, which process would 
be much more difficult if used to select several times as many com- 
missioners; therefore be it resolved that 

(1) Orange Presbytery does not consider a delegated Synod to be advis- 
able at the present time, and that 

(2) Orange Presbytery instruct its Stated Clerk to convey a copy of this 
resolution to the Stated Clerk of the Synod of North Carolina. 

The Order of the Day for Adjournment was extended until 6:20 p.m.

4. The following recommendations were adopted regarding the franchise of 
the Disability Insurance Plan between Pilot Life Insurance Company and 
Orange Presbytery in lieu of the coverage now existing with the Board 
of Annuities and Relief: 

A. To discontinue the franchise on the present plan of disability insurance 
with Pilot Life Insurance Company and request a pro rata refund on 
all ministers whose salary and manse allowances do not reach $14,000. 

B, That an optional plan be adopted for those ministers whose salary and 
manse allowances combined exceed $14,000, that they might have 
additional disability benefits to cover 60% of their current salary. 

Ministers qualified under (B) were reminded to notify the office 
within 30 days of their salary and manse allowance in order to become 
eligible. 

5. The stated clerk reminded Presbytery that the Northside and Fuller 
Memorial Churches were notified by registered mail of the action of the 
January 15 meeting of Presbytery, "That all property of the churches be 
delivered, conveyed and transferred to the authorized agents of Orange 
Presbytery in accord with the Book of Church Order, paragraph 6-3, on 
or before April 15, 1974", and as of April 20, 1974, no response has been 
received. 

6. The stated clerk read a request from the session of the Riverview Presby- 
terian Church asking that the manse of this church be transferred to the 
Trustees of the Riverview Church. The following recommendation was 
adopted: 

"The Session of the Riverview Presbyterian Church requests that the 
deed to the manse now in the ownership of Orange Presbytery be trans- 
ferred to the Trustees of the Rivei^view Presbyterian Church, Eden, North 
Carolina and that the Trustees of Orange Presbytery be authorized and 
directed to execute a deed to the parties (Trustees) indicated. This 
property is located at 212 Fairway Street, Eden, North Carolina, Rockin^j- 
ham County. 

Said property as follows : 

BEGINNING at an iron marking the Northwest corner of Lot No. 1, 
Section 3, as per map entitled "Central Area Property of Central Develop- 
ment Company", said iron also marking the southeast intersection of 
Marshall Avenue by Fairway Street: thence with the southern line of

between lots 1 and 2, Section 3; thence with the East line of Fairway 
Street North 19-50 West 100 feet to the point of beg-inning and being Lot 
No. 1, Section 3, as per the aforesaid map, said map being recorded in 
Map Book 11 at Page 99 in the office of the Register of Deed of Rock- 
ingham County, North Carolina. 

7. The stated clerk reported that the Administrative Commission on the 
White Oak Church has not met and will not report until the June meeting. 

8. The following overture from the Glenwood Presbyterian Church, (^reens- 
boi-o, N. C. was referred to the Committee on Bills and Overtures: 

"Camp New Hope has been very important to the life and program 
of Glenwood Presbyterian Church. We have held Family Retreats in the 
spring and fall of every year, and both our Junior High and Senior High 
groups have used the camp for retreats each year at least once. We have 
provided half the cost of all who have attended the summer camping 
program. However, Glenwood is a small church with limited resources, 
and we feel that the fee structure as announced by the office of Orange 
Presbytery will prevent our using the camp and cripple an important part 
of our fellowship. A weekend retreat for 70 would cost $246 plus the cost 
of meals. For 20 Senior Highs to attend a retreat and use the Retreat 
Center would cost $96 plus meals. The $45 cost for the regular summer 
camps will, we believe, prevent many children whose families are not 
willing to ask for financial assistance from attending. 
The Session would call to your attention that, to our knowledge, no other 
educational work of Orange Presbytery is expected to be paid for entirely 
by those taking part, and that most churches, including Glenwood, are in- 
creasingly making their facilities available to community groups without 
requiring that a proportionate share of operating costs and debt retire- 
ment be made. 

It is our belief that Camp New Hope can best serve all the churches of 
Orange Presbytery by continuing to be operated on a subsidized basis. 

Therefore, the Session of Glenwood Presbyterian Church respectfully 
overtures the Presbytery of Orange, meeting at the New Hope Church, 
Willow Springs, N. C. on April 20, 1974 to take the foUow^ing actions: 

A. To review the fee schedule for use of Camp New Hope by Presbytery 
groups with the consideration of total or partial subsidization, and 

B. To partially subsidize the cost of summer camps at Camp New Hope 
and Presbyterian Point." 

9. The following Overture from the St. Paul Presbyterian Church, Greens- 
boro, N. C. was referred to the Committee on Bills and Overtures: 'She 
Session of St. Paul Presbyterian Church wishes to express its sury:risc 
and concern in regard to the new price structure for the use of Camp Nev, 
Hope as it pertains to the grounds fee. 

Our Church has used the many facilities of Camp New Hope for our 
Spring and Fall Family Retreats as well as for summer camp. These pro- 
grams have meant a lot to the growth of our Church as witnessed by the 
attendance we have had at the camp. 

We feel the new price structure will prohibit many of our families 
from participating. If we are going to have families who cannot attend 
because of cost we feel that promoting these programs would not blend 
with the theme of Christian fellowship we wish to express at St. Paul 
Church. 

We wish to express to the Presbytery that its many resources have 
also meant a great deal to the growth of our Church, but to many of our 
families the most tangible and direct contribution the Presbytery offers is 
the facilities at Camp New Hope. 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



49 



We, therefore, respectfully overture the Presbytery, at its next meet- 
ing to review the price structure considering a total or partially subsidized 
program when the camp is used by Presbyterian groups or the possibility 
for a flat fee for group use." 

10. An Overture has been received from the Shiloh Presbyterian Church, Bur- 
lington, N. C. and was referred to the Committee on Bills and Overtures: 

"Whereas, the term 'schismatic' as applied by a Court of PCUS to a 
member, a group of members, a congregation or a group of congregations 
within this denomination has the connotation of labeling those to whom 
the term is applied as being intentionally and rebelliously destructive to 
the body of the denomination, and 

Whereas, the actions of the Northside Presbyterian Church have not 
appeared to be of the nature to warrant so strong a term to be applied 
to them, and 

Whereas, we as Christians should act in such a manner so as to 
decrease, not increase, friction between the brethren in the interest of 
striving toward the peace and unity of the Body of Jesus Christ: 

Therefore, despite our disagreement with the action of withdrawal of 
the Northside Presbyterian Church from the PCUS, we the Session of 
Shiloh Presbyterian Church respectfully request that the Presbytery of 
Orange reconsider the action taken at its January meeting in reference 
to the Northside Church with the possibility of removing the label 'schis- 
matic' and retracting, therefore, the resultant status of its pastor, officers, 
and members. 

We further request the Presbytery of Orange take all actions in its 
power to facilitate the smooth dismissal of the Northside Church from 
the denomination including the Presbytery's relinquishing all claims to 
the Northside Church Property." 

11. An Overture has been received from the Westview Presbyterian Church, 
Burlington, N. C. and was referred to the Committee on Bills and Over- 
tures: 

"Whereas, the General Assembly of the PCUS has not determined 
what relationship the PCUS will have to the newly organized National 
Presbyterian Church; and 

Whereas, the Presbytery of Orange has called the action of the North- 
side Presbyterian Church "schismatic", which seems questionable; and 

Whereas, we feel that it would be in the best interest of Orange 
Presbytery and the Northside Presbyterian Church for this matter to be 
worked out in an orderly. Christian manner: 

WE THEREFORE RECOMMEND THAT: 

A. Orange Presbytery seek to clarify through the proper channels the 
relationship of the PCUS to the National Presbyterian Church; 

B. Orange Presbytery take whatever action is necessary to withdraw the 
label "schismatic" from the action of the Northside Presbyterian 
Church ; 

C. Orange Presbytery do all within its power to make an orderly dis- 
missal of the church, its property, and its members." 

12. W. T. Perkins, chairman. Committee on Stewardship, announced the 
Workshops to be held on September 10, Stannount Church, Greensboro 
and September 17, White Memorial Church, Raleigh, 7-9 p.m. Six persons 
are invited from each church; pastor, treasurer, stewardship promotion 
chairman, every member canvass chairman, clerk of session, chairman of 
diaconate.

follows: 

Ministers — ^John M. Walker, Jr., chairman, Robert Cochran, John R. McAlpine; 

Ruling Elders— R. G. Kittrell, Jr., Harold R, Skillman, R. D. Buchan. 

John M. Walker, Jr., chairman, presented the report of the Commission 
which was adopted and admitted to record: 

"At the request of the Presbytery of Orange at its January 15, 1974 
meeting, and in conformity with the desires of the Gruver Memorial 
Church congregation and by the appointment of Moderator Curtis Hai-per, 
the Administrative Commission for the Gruver Memorial Church, in re- 
sponse to a call by John M. Walker, chairman of the Commission, met on 
April 18, 1974 in the Littleton Presbyterian Church building. 

John M. Walker presided over the meeting of the Commission as 
chairman, and Robert G. Kittrell, Jr. was elected secretary. Present for 
the meeting were John M. Walker, J. R. McAlpine, Claude G. Pepper, and 
ruling elders R. D. Buchan, Harold R. Skillman and Robert G. Kittrell, Jr. 

The Commission reviewed the roll of active members of the Gruver 
Memorial Church, their requests for transfer, and the Church property. 

After consideration of the above matters, the Administrative Commission 
makes the following recommendations: 

1. That Gruver Memorial Church be dissolved. 

2. That Miss Verleen Vitula Pittard and Mrs. T. S. Walker be trans- 
ferred to the Warrenton Presbyterian Church by a Certificate of 
Dismission from this Commission.

5. That the Session Book be delivered to the Historical Foundation of 
Montreat, N. C. 

6. That the Gruver Memorial Bible, Communion Service, hymnals, books, 
pews and all other personal property be transferred to the Littleton 
Presbyterian Church, with the request that any Bibles, hymnals, 
Church books and literature that are not needed by the Littleton 
Church be offered to the Presbytery of Orange for use in its program. 

7. That the $342.32 in cash formerly belonging to Gruver Memorial 
Church be disbursed as follows: 

$46 to Synod for first quarter benevolent askings. 

$42 to Presbytery of Orange for tax. 

$57.90 to Reverend Claude Pepper as salary through May. 

$196.42 to Reverend Claude Pepper to be held by him in a special account, 
to be used for Memorial and Remembrances in accordance with the 
request of the Gruver Memorial Church congregation. 

In addition to the above recommendation, the Commission found that 
the title to the one acre upon which it is situated, w^as originally held 
by the Trustees of Granville Presbytery, and appears to be now vested 
in the Trustees for the Presbytery of Orange. Attention is called to a 
stipulation in the deed which requires the payment of $40 plus interesi 
at six (6%) percent from January 31, 1927 to the Pittard heirs, should 
the lot be sold or leased. The Commission recommends that if Presbytery 
does not have a Church related use for the land and buildings, the Trus- 
tees of Orange Presbytery be directed to convey the deed to the real 
property to the Pittard heirs or such individual heir as the family may 
designate. 

The dissolution of the Gruver Memorial Church will make a change 
in the Reverend Claude (J. Pepper's Call and a reduction in his salary. 
The Commission recommends that the Presbytery of Orange bring this 
matter to the immediate attention of the Warrenton Presbyterian Church 
and the Littleton Presbyterian Church. 

The Commission requests that the recommendations contained in this 
Report be adopted, the Report be admitted to record, and the Adminis- 
trative Commission be dissolved." 

John M. Walker, Chairman 

Following this report, the moderator led Presbytery in a prayer for the 
Gruver Memorial Church and its witness.

3. The Minutes of the Commission to Review and Approve the Minutes of the 
April 20, 1974 Meeting of Orange Presbytery were received and admitted 
to record: 

The Commission to review the minutes of the April 20, 1974 meeting of the 
Presbytery of Orange met in presbytery's office May 20, 1974 at 2:00 p.m. 
The meeting was convened with prayer by Chairman, Charles Fitzpatrick. 
Members of the Commission present: Ministers — Charles Fitzpatrick, Lewis " 
V. Boyle, Frank Davison, David Garrison; Ruling Elders — Aletta Briggs, 
J. C. Petrea, Hunter Dalton, Mary Ann Evans and Marshel Dean. 
A quorum was determined and the Commission proceeded to business. 
The minutes of the meeting of Presbytery were reviewed, corrected and 
upon a motion duly seconded and passed, approved. The Stated Clerk was 
authorized to print the minutes of the January and April meetings of 
presbytery together. 

The minutes of the meeting of the Commission were read by the secretary i 
and were approved. 

The meeting was adjourned with prayer by Lewis V. Boyle. 

4. A communication was read by the stated clerk from the session of the 
Warrenton Presbyterian Church, Warrenton, N. C. requesting that certain 
property in Norlina, North Carolina be sold and that the proceeds of the 
sale ($2,000) be given to the Warrenton Presbyterian Church as indicated 
below. A motion was adopted to grant this request. 

On March 18, 1974 the session of the Warrenton Presbyterian Church was 
notified that it had Presbytery's tentative approval to proceed with the 
sale of certain property owned by Presbytery and located in the town of 
Norlina, North Carolina. This was to be done with Presbytery assuming 
any expenses connected with the sale such as survey costs and other costs 
involved. Since then representatives of the Warrenton session have ar- 
ranged for the sale of the property at a price of approximately $2,000 with 
no expense to Presbytery. After contact with the Office of Presbytery, the 
session of the Warrenton Church decided to petition Presbytery as follows: 
Since the property involved has been overseen and maintained by the i 
Warrenton Presbyterian Church and no use was made of it by Albemarle, 
Granville or Orange Presbyteries, and since it was originally bequeathed 
to the Church and Albemarle Presbytery; and members of the Warrenton 
Presbyterian Church arranged the sale of the property at no cost to the 
Presbytery, therefore, we petition Orange Presbytery to grant to the 
Warrenton Presbyterian Church the proceeds from this sale to apply on the 
indebtedness of the manse of the Warrenton Presbyterian Church. 

5. The following letter was received: 

"With regard to the previous action of Presbytery at its April 20, 1974 ' 
stated meeting, concerning the conveyance of the property of the Gruver ' 
Memorial Presbyterian Church, a motion was passed instructing the trus- 
tees of Orange Presbytery to execute a deed to the party indicated in the 
following request: 

On April 20, 1974, Orange Presbytery adopted the recommendation of its 
Commission to dissolve the Gruver Memorial Presbyterian Church, Route 1, 
Littleton, North Carolina, and to return the property, or to transfer the 
deed to the property, of the heirs of Mrs. Fannie Pittard who in 1927 gave \ 
to the Church one square acre of land. 

We whose signatures appear below are five sisters, heirs of Mrs. Fannie m 
Pittard. It is our request that the one acre of land with the building on it ■ 
be given to our sister, Miss Verleen Vitula Pittard of Warrenton, North il 
Carolina. It is our request that the deed in your possession be transferred Jit

to this sister. We do this of our own free will being united in the request 
for transfer of Deed. 

We thank you for your help in this matter. 

We are attaching to this request our signatures."

Berlie P. Epps, Wilson, N. C. 
Mamie P. Temple, Littleton, N. C. 
Blanche P. Jenkins, Littleton, N. C.

The request was granted and the Trustees were authorized to convey the 
property as requested. 

6. Memorials to Samuel Eryle Howie and Henry Howard Thompson were read 
to the court and a motion to adopt them was passed with copies being sent 
to the families. 

SAMUEL ERYLE HOWIE 

Samuel Eryle Howie was born in Mecklenberg County, North Carolina, 
April 27, 1901. He died while still pursuing a major interest in his ministry, 
that of pastoral counselling, at the Menninger Psychiatric Center in Topeka, 
Kansas on April 10, 1974. 

A graduate of William and Mary College and Union Theological Seminary 
in Virginia, with pastorates in Pontotoc and Tupelo, Mississippi, Memphis, 
Tennessee and Fayetteville, North Carolina, Sam Howie proved himself to be 
a man of unusual intellectual gifts and personal attractiveness. He was a non- 
conformist, impatient with much of the traditional stance of his church but a 
beloved pastor to many people to whom he ministered in an understanding 
person-to-person manner. 

In August of 1928 he married Emma Lee Doerr of San Antonio, Texas 
who herself had trained as Director of Christian Education at PSCE (then 
the Assembly's Training School) at Richmond, Virginia. To their union were 
bom three children, Samuel Eryle, Jr., Emily Ann (Mrs. Hoffman) and John 
Sandall (all of whom survive their father). 

Since God in His wise Providence has seen fit to call His Servant Samuel 
Eryle Howie from this world to a higher and better one, be it hereby resolved: 

That we who continue our pilgrimage in the Master's Service thank God 
for His servant's sojourn among us and in so far as he touched in faith "the 
hem of the Master's garment" may we follow in his footsteps. 

Be it further resolved that we extend deepest sympathy to his children, 
that a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of Presbytery and 
copies be forwarded to members of the family. 

HENRY HOWARD THOMPSON 

Henry Howard Thompson, a Mississippian by birth, served his Lord and 
His Church well. He was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1913 and initially 
1 was pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Natchez in his native state. 
I Other effective ministries followed in the First Churches of Baton Rouge, 
i Louisiana, Bristol, Tennessee, and Ruston, Louisiana. For two years he was 
; Associate Pastor in the First Presbyterian Church of Raleigh, North Carolina. 
For a decade Dr. Thompson served as Secretary of Evangelism both on General 
Assembly level and in the Synod of North Carolina. 

As pastor, as well as in Secretarial positions, his prior emphasis was a 
deep concern for individuals to be confronted personally with the Call of 



18 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



Christ. He gave much of his time and attention, seeking to challenge and train 
the laity to share their Lord with others. For leadership in this area alone, our 
entire Church owed Howard Thompson a genuine debt of gratitude. Dr. 
Thompson was a graduate of Southwestern Presbyterian University. His 
Alma Mater conferred upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity in 
1922. His theological education was secured at the Presbyterian Theological 
Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, with post graduate study at New College in 
Edinburgh, Scotland. 

Howard Thompson was married to Frances Ellzey of Natchez, and to their 
union three children were born: Two sons, Howard Thompson, Jr. on the staff 
of the New York Times, New York City; Dr. William Y. Thompson, Chairman 
of the History Department of Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana, 
and Mrs. Frederick C. Wightman, Jr., of Princeton, New Jersey. Mrs. Thomp- 
son and the three children survive him and have the satisfaction of having 
been loyal supporters and allies in his productive ministry. 

Since God in His wise Providence has seen fit to promote Henry Howard 
Thompson in his 86th year, November 18, 1973 to his eternal reward, Be it 
hereby resolved: 

That the Presbytery of Orange give special thanks to Almighty God for 
the personal and unselfish service of this servant of the Master; 

That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the Minutes of Orange 
Presbytery and copies, with the deepest sympathy of the members of this 
body, be forwarded to the Thompson family. 

A motion was adopted to amend the docket by delaying the Order of the 
Day by ten minutes.

REPORT OF THE COUNCIL OF PRESBYTERY 

H. Edwin Pickard, chairman of the Council of Presbytery, presented the 
following recommendation which was adopted: 

1. That the Presbytery hear the three Division Executives of Presbytery 
regarding the Challenge Budget of their respective divisions. 

In reference to the above recommendation, the three executives presented 
the budgets of their respective divisions. H. Edwin Pickard, chaiiman, 
presented the budget of the Council of Presbytery. 

DOCKET 

A motion was adopted to change the Order of the Day for the report of 
Presbyterys' Council from 11:30 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. and Presbytery was divided 
into small groups for the purposes of discussion and reaction to the Challenge 
Budget for 1975. Presbytery reassembled and the chairman continued with the 
report of Presbytery's Council. 

Report of Council of Presbytery Continued 

H. Edwin Pickard presented recommendation number 2 which was adopted: 

2. That the Challenge Budget in the amount of $1,183,807 be approved by 
Presbytery. Recommendation number three, as amended, was adopted: 

3. That Presbytery adopt the recommendation of the Council regarding Glade 
Valley School: 

Even though we do not endorse the experiment in secondary education for 
a limited group which is being proposed by the Board of Trustees of Glade 
Valley School, the Council of Orange Presbytery believes that the Glade 
Valley facilities, properties, and personnel can probably perform a unique 
ministry in leadership development and vocational re-evaluation. Members 
of the Board of Trustees, of the Council of Orange Presbytery, and of the 
Council of Concord Presbytery are designing and developing this ministry. 
We, therefore, recommend to Orange Presbyteiy that a fund for the pro- 
posed development of resources for the Glade Valley School be included in 
the Proposed Budget of Orange Presbytery for 1975 in the amount up to 
$10,000 (this is understood as not adding to the budget already approved) 
and that this item be administered by the Division of Elders. 

The report was adopted as a whole v/ith its recommendations: 

The Council of Orange Presbytery met on Thursday, May 23, at Presby- 
tery's Office. Through the various Divisions of Presbytery, the Finance Com- 
mittee has prepared a Challenge Budget for 1975 amounting to a total of 
$1,183,807. This, in turn, has been approved by the Council and is being 
recommended to Presbytery. It is not being suggested at this time that this 
be adopted as the Working Budget of Presbytery for 1975. This Challenge 
Budget, however, is being presented in response to Presbytery's desire that the 
basic needs for ministry by and through the Presbytery be presented, and 
askings be forwarded to churches early enough for thorough consideration by 
them as they draft their own 1975 Challenge Budgets. 

Through the Finance Committee the Council is planning to forward specific 
challenge askings to each church prior to September 1, 1974. The generous 
response of each church will determine how much of this challenge we as a 

I Presbytery shall be able to accept. A Working Budget for 1975 will be pre- 

! sented at the October 29th meeting of Presbytery. 

The Council's Task Force on Strategy has continued to function. The 
' strategy in preparation for 1975 is as indicated above. The first of the geo- 
graphical Conventions of Elders mentioned by the Council in its last report 
will be held during the second week of November. These will actually begin 



20 



Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



the cycle of preparation for the 1976 budget. Every member of every Session 
will be given an opportunity in one of these geographical conventions to 
examine needs for ministry within and beyond Presbytery and to have a part 
in establishing priorities. The Council has continued to ask ail committee 
chairpersons to curtail or restrict their expenditures for the current year in 
the light of existing financial circumstances. For the present year commit- 
ments do not equal the budget adopted by Presbytery. Based upon 1973 
benevolence receipts and anticipated additional income, the Finance Commit- 
tee foresees receipts of approximately $925,000 for 1974 on a $970,000 budget. 
Items have been deleted from the budget such as $14,000 for a Program 
Director at Camp New Hope for 1974, and other items have been reduced. 
With judicious expenditures our Executives and Council feel that the budget 
will be balanced for 1974. Generous responses by our churches in excess of 
commitments will make it possible for the full program for the year envisioned 
by Presbytery to be accomplished. 

Pursuant to Presbytery's action at its Winter Meeting, the Task Force on 
Glade Valley School has met with a similar group from Concord Presbytery 
and the Executive Committee of the Board of Glade Valley a second time. 

Recommendations have been listed previously in the report.

an announcement concerning the Workshops on Stewardship to be held Sep- 
tember 10 in the Starmount Presbyterian Church, Greensboro, 7 p.m. and on

STEERING COMMITTEE-DIVISION OF ELDERS 

Z. N. Holler, chairman, presented the report of the Steering Committee of 
the Division of Elders regarding Restructure of the Division. The report with 
its recommendations was adopted. 

At the last meeting of Presbytery the Steering Committee of the Division 
of Elders pointed out that: 

When the present structure of the Division of Elders and the Commission 
on the Minister and His work was adopted in February of 1973, it was 
understood that this structure was experimental and somewhat open to 
question constitutionally. It was also understood that the structure would 



f Minutes of Orange Presbytery 27 

i' 

be tried for one year, then evaluated and, if it had proved sufficiently 
effective, clarified constitutionally. 

In February of 1974 the Steering Committee, in keeping with this earlier action 
of Presbytery began to evaluate the past year's operation. During recent 
months this evaluation has been completed. Now, believing that it would serve 
to coordinate and strengthen the present work of the Division of Elders and 
the Conamission on the Minister and His Work, as well as provide for greater 
flexibility in meeting further needs within the areas of concern assigned to 
these groups, the Steering Committee recommends: (1) that the following be 
substituted for those sections of Presbytery's manual entitled "The Division 
of Elders" and "Presbytery Commissions"; 

THE DIVISION OF ELDERS 

^ ' The Division of Elders performs certain reviewing, training, and pastoral 
functions for the Presbytery, as well as certain Committee functions of the 
Commission on the Minister and His Work (BCO 21-2). 

A designated number of the members of the Commission shall comprise 
the Steering Committee of the Division of Elders. The General Pastor, 
who serves as Chairman of this Steering Committee, shall provide leadership 
and initiative for its work. The Steering Committee itself shall be responsi- 
ble for the policy decisions which determine its program and activities. Those 
of its functions which are properly functions of the Commission on the 
Minister & His Work (BCO 21-2) shall be approved by the Commission. Its 
other functions shall be coordinated with those of the other program divisions 
of Presbytery through the Council of Presbytery. 

It shall be the responsibility of this Steering Committee to develop means 
for meeting the needs of Presbytery in these areas of concern: (1) the 
strengthening, support, and periodic review and evaluation of the work of 
the pastors and the sessions. (2) The preparation, continuing education, loca- 
tion, relocation, compensation and personal and professional support of teach- 
ing elders and other church professionals and (3) The initial training, con- 
tinuing development and effective utilization of the lay leadership of the 
Presbytery. The concern for the work of pastors and sessions is expressed 
through a program of regular Presbytery visitation in the churches, through 
annual review of sessional records; and through assisting sessions in periodic 
review and evaluation of their ministries and their working relationships. The 
concern for teaching elders and other church professionals is expressed through 
recruiting and exercising care for candidates for the ministry; through over- 
seeing and facilitating the calling of all pastors within the Presbytery; through 
facilitating needed pastoral changes; through reviewing ministers' salaries 
and recommending salary standards; through examining candidates and min- 
isters who are seeking membership in Presbytery; through counseling and 
advising non-parish teaching elders concerning their work and utilizing their 
experience and gifts in the ministry of Presbytery; and through providing 
such professional services as will help all the church professionals in Presby- 
tery to grow in their effectiveness and to derive increasing satisfaction in 
their ministries. 

The concern for developing the lay leadership is expressed through 
establishing Presbytery programs and resources to assist in pre-ordination 
training of church officers; through providing educational opportunities for 
lay leaders designed to help them grow in knowledge of the church's message, 
mission and polity, as well as in spiritual discernment and practical effective- 
ness; and through providing lay leaders opportunities for reflection on their 
work, spiritual renewal, personal growth and mutual support. 

The Division is invested by Presbytery with full authority to initiate 
programs and activities appropriate to these concerns.

Minutes of Orange Presbytery 



THE COMMISSION ON THE MINISTER 

The Commission on the Minister is responsible for the functions set forth 
in the Book of Church Order, chapter 21. Those of its members who, with the 
General Pastor, comprise the Steering Committee for the Division of Elders, 
have particular responsibility for the Committee functions described in BCO 
21-2. The other members of the Commission, under the leadership of its Chair- 
man, have particular responsibility for the Commission functions described 
in the Book of Church Order, including (1) visiting churches to inquire into 
and settle difficulties, especially those arising out of relationships between 
pastors and churches (BCO 21-3, 4) and (2) dissolving pastoral relationships 
when both pastor and church are in accord. 

The General Pastor may, upon the request of the Commission on the 
Minister, serve in an advisory role as it deliberates and carries out its Com- 
mission duties (BCO 21-3, 4). But this is not mandatory, and it may some- 
times be inadvisable because of the confidential nature of the General Pastor's 
contacts with the ministers and other officers of Presbytery. 

(2) That the Presbytery hear a presentation of the reasons behind this 
proposal for organizational improvement by the members of the Steering 
Committee, all of whom endorse the proposal. (3) That in accord with the 
Presbytery's Manual, Section V ("Amendment") These changes go into effect 
at the close of the October meeting of Orange Presbytery. 

COMMITTEE ON COMPENSATION 

Dick Short, chairman, presented the report of the Committee on Compen- 
sation which was adopted: 

1. The Committee recommends that the basic categories and rationale adopted 
in the "Revised Salary Standards of Orange Presbytery for 1974" be 
retained for 1975, along with the following specific changes: 

A. That for churches that provide a housing allowance the minimum figure 
for salary including housing be changed from $10,800 to $11,400 (Cate- 
gory I) 

B. That for churches that own and provide manses the minimum cash 
salary paid to minister (Category I) be set at $8,500. (Cost of utilities 
and upkeep are to be paid by the church and are not to be included in or 
deducted from this minimum cash salary). 

C. That major medical insurance be provided for the minister and his/her 
family (Category II). 

D. That in view of the spiraling costs of Social Security, churches deter- 
mine these costs for their minister and take them into account in arriving 
at annual salary adjustments (Category IV). 

E. That the Presbytery encourage its constituent churches to include in all 
calls a provision for an annual cost of living adjustment — ^^thereby doing 
away with the need for Presbytery to approve annual salaiy changes which 
are simply cost of living adjustments. 

2. The Committee recommends that the salary changes printed on the sheet 
that was handed out to commissioners when they arrived at this meeting 
of Presbytery be approved.
